MURMURATIONS
mixed media (carborundum, charcoal, graphite)

Recalling long train rides through the Bourgogne countryside, this series seeks not to reproduce a specific landscape, but rather to evoke the memory of these moments—what I saw, the words that drifted through my head, the emotions that hung heavy on my shoulders.
