The Blind Man and the Elephant
by Stephen Glueckert

Copyright: 2015

This series of 20 drawings were created using oil based drawing materials, including oil pastel, cattle marker, Keno crayon and China marker. The drawings are directly inspired by the ancient parable that has much to teach us today. The tale seemed a natural to attempt to develop in black and white, since at the core of the tale is the metaphor of blindness, contrasting the worlds of light and dark, the seen and unseen. The tale contrasts the ideas of what we can actually grasp as real through evidence, with what we might perceive in our mind's eyes as truth. And in the end, how utterly wrong everyone can be.
