Charcoal & Pixels is an exhibition of traditional and digital portraiture by Helena and Damian Edwardson. Both Helena and Damian specialise in portraiture but are quite different in their approaches. Whilst Helena chooses to use charcoal for her drawings, Damian opts to use digital media to create his portraits. This exhibition contrasts the use of traditional and digital materials to make artwork, using the portrait as subject matter.
Over a period of months, Helena has been creating charcoal portraits of people she knows, and some that she has only met once, while Damian is intrigued by characters from popular culture; heroes and villains alike.
