Classical new age garden scene with Graces. Graphite on paper. Drawing by Axel Saffran.
  • The Graces

    This depiction of the Graces merges several spheres of existence in one image. Goddesses appearing in the flesh, in stone and (implied) metaphysically. Three planes intermingle. As an improvisation, this drawing leans on an antique photograph of a garden scene with dancers, but its way of rendering made me feel lucky to be able to somehow tie it all together in the end.
