The artistic allure of hidden figures makes me to draw them. Hidden human figures in drawings have long fascinated artists and viewers alike, offering a captivating and enigmatic element to artistic compositions. And I am no exception. One might wonder why we choose to conceal something we actually desire to reveal. After all, that is precisely why we create works of art: paintings, sculptures, or, in this particular case, drawings. When something remains hidden, it ignites within us an insatiable urge to seek it out, to uncover its secrets. It becomes a captivating process, the outcome of which is never guaranteed. Yet, it undeniably stirs up a whirlwind of emotions. We embark on our search with bated breath, fuelled by anticipation and a surge of adrenaline. And when we finally stumble upon what has been concealed, the elation is indescribable.
But why do people feel compelled to hide? What compelled me to shroud the figures in my drawing within their own huddle? I cannot say for certain. In fact, I am not even attempting to unravel the answer. There came a point when they chose to retreat from one another, to withdraw into their own enigmatic sanctuary. However, I also hold onto the hope that they will eventually seek each other out, that they will embark on a quest to reunite. And when that long-awaited moment arrives, their joy will be immeasurable.
