Large charcoal drawing

I started to look a friend who has suffered from malnourishment. I wanted to start creating a large scale drawing of her where she is changing her body shape to show her bones. Oriphysis is where the inside of the body becomes to show through and come out. By distorting her body shape she is able to show her bones through her skin. The image I decided to start with implies she is purposefully stretching her body out in order to show the bones. As I started to work on this piece I began to think about how far I wanted to develop and sculpt the work. The piece is not necessarily classified as ‘finished’ but I feel the unfinished-ness to the work forms a sense of development shows the way I started looking into the idea as an exploration. I am going to leave this piece as it is as I am happy with the way it stands right now.
