A SURREAL SKETCH -- ORIGINAL PICTURES OF UNICORNS
One of two original pictures of unicorns on display in the online gallery, this unique and surreal sketch revisits a private moment (between a unicorn and maiden) interupted, from a different angle: what if a man had come between the two? The wicca (or "wise woman") looks back on the decision. A certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist, is included with purchase.

TITLE: "Crossroads" © Chris Eisenbraun 1993.

ARTIST NOTES:
This is actually one of the earliest crossover pieces: 1) the artwork moves the unicorn from a fantasy background to a distinctly surreal fine art setting; 2) three inking fields (crosshatching, stippling and contourism) make a joint appearance in one work of art. Soooo as an early, crossover work it could be particularly valuable to a collector <g>.

The name of the artwork refers to the subject matter: looking back on decisions made in the past. This is symbolically represented by the appearance of the wicca ("wise woman") at the bottom of the picture :)

The female face at the bottom and the male face within the cloak are actually based on an old Calvin Klein advertisement (black and white). I forget where the other image came from... I 'think' the young lady was quite nude and I actually added clothes to her. A teacher once told me that you can't draw someone with clothes on unless you know what their body is doing underneath the clothing, so I started sketching nudes. Somehow I usually ended up forgetting to put the clothes back on the figure <lol>. I also have quite the Playboy collection because of that piece of advice. Too funny.

This is the second of two original pictures of unicorns in the drawing gallery (one pencil, one pen & ink) which touch on a moment interrupted: between the maiden and her unicorn. Each original work of art takes completely different approaches to the subject, from completely different angles. Both pictures of unicorns are important works showcasing major artistic development and would make an excellent addition to any serious fine art collection :)

 

 

 

On a submliminal level, we lost so much when we got rid of the round clock face and the hand that swept round (as the moon sweeps round the earth). The scientist insists that the unicorn myth is based on original sightings of the rhinoceros, but that is just TOO mundane of an explanation for a symbol that has such a hold on our souls.
