This image came to me as I listened to one the Biblical reflections on the issue of sex and gender at Cranmer Hall, St John’s, Durham. The text was from Genesis 1 & 2 and focused on the creation of man and woman (Adam and Eve).
The other significant thing about this image is the medium. Usually I use chalk pastels but this is done using ‘Inktense’ blocks and pencils. They are water soluble ink blocks and solid ink pencils and perform a little like oil pastels and watercolours. I’m experimenting with them and its quite good fun.
