The War of Art: New Chess Art
This drawing titled: The War of Art, helps illustrate the multiple thoughts that were going on with me at the time and a process most artists and creatives go through. The subject matter I selected to illustrate was another chess creation to my ongoing collection of chess art.
I started working on this chess drawing in 2013 or 2014. It's been quite the journey for this drawing as the paper has managed to withstand the six or seven years I have been working on it, two moves, and many late nights thinking about what to do next.
Just like in chess, a drawing, painting, or song can be a war. The artist is trying to win the internal battle and tell the perfect story or express the emotions that the creation was intended to do.
This chess drawing allows you to step inside my mind during a chess match. Constantly analyzing the board and searching for the next move to win the small battles and eventually the war. Don't take your eyes off the opponent's bishop or knight, checkmate and defeat is always a move away.
