I NEED to get more work done by this genius!

He looks so unimpressed with the world, like ‘Why is it so fucking bright out here? Christ.’
I’ve been with my man for over 3 years and during that time I’ve only mostly seen him in my university holidays.
I’m graduating this summer (WITH A 2:1 PSYCHOLGOY BSc!!) and really looking forward to the next chapter with him :)
John Ruskin, Budding Sycamore, c. 1876
From the Cleveland Museum of Art:
The most influential art critic in Britain during the 19th century, Ruskin was also an amateur artist for whom drawing was the cornerstone of artistic practice. Since his early youth, a keen perception of the world and obsessive desire to capture nature in all of its details found expression in his drawings. In this study of a leafing sycamore in early spring, Ruskin combined exquisite detail with atmospheric rendering of space, leaving the edges of the drawing unresolved. This sheet exemplifies his belief that drawn fragments, if sensitively observed, were capable of suggesting the profound mysteries of the natural world.

Jack Edmonds is an artist/composer living and working in Camden, London. He studied Fine Art at Hastings, Bexhill and Moving Image at Brighton University where he achieved a First Class Honours. He now actively works in Fine Art, Music and Film on a freelance basis. His visual art work is a response to natural processes, compound and chemical structures and musical themes. His paintings often comment on the notion of medium specificty, where the core idea or theme of the piece is dependant on the material process. This idea also extends to the method of application and tools used in order to dictate a certain kind of motion or process that echoes the subject found in nature. Please visit his Tumblr portfolio for more paintings and music.
