TOBY LIEBOWITZ - NONSUCH
My work this month has been working on a short narrative comic Nonsuch. Nonsuch explores the world of a group of 10-year-old boys who discover a hermit living in the woods by their homes. It's about private and public space overlapping, fear of the unknown and being young and feeling like every day is a new adventure.
I've been focusing on landscapes as well as figures within landscapes, often with a slight narrative, mythical, or allegorical context. My style is monochromatic and depends on the texture of the linen. I hope my work has a timeless quality, such that the viewer is unsure whether it was created a hundred years ago or today.
