Bryan Stryeski, Defiance, 2020




This is a series I started during the Covid pandemic. When times are uncertain we tend to crave the familiar. In my case it was the comfort and directness of drawing. This is a image I created with a pencil based on a picture I took of my friend in Point Defiance Park. I was interested in the forest as a metaphor for the unknown future ahead. It can be seen as a chaotic mess tangled in vines. I was also interested in how the figure blends into this natural world that seems to be overpowering. My hope was to depict a feeling of defiance in the face of uncertain times.
