The Annunciation drawings 1-9
Pencil and charcoal on paper
In January 2016 a friend approached me to produce a work based on The Annunciation. The book recounts a series of extraordinary encounters with a diverse range of people, from eminent clerics to artists including Grayson Perry. My brief was simply to respond to the story. I approached this work without any preconceptions and he documented the process. Working in charcoal on paper the drawings were entirely intuitive, linked only by a pencil line at the start which gives each study a story to follow. The most intriguing thing about this project is how they are now interpreted.
The Annunciation, by Mark Byford is published in 2018.
The 9 drawings are available as a complete framed collection of originals, or as individual limited edition prints.
