Spirits of the Cavern

by Alex Castro

“Spirits of the Cavern,” graphite pencil on paper 20″ x 28″ drawn by Alex Castro

This drawing is entitled “Spirits of the Cavern.” This composition is set in a foggy cave that sets the mood for this mystical piece of oppositions both in gender and in density.  I attempted to create these figures visually balanced but spiritually united: the female is incased in a crystal stalactite and the male in the process of materializing, gazing at his other half ; both evolving from different  perspectives .

“The universe is full of magical things,patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.”  – Eden Phillpotts
