Hanged Man by Amy Crook

Hanged Man, 5″x7″ pen & ink on paper

A fair bit of lurking horror crept its way into the Floating Gallery this month, starting with this stark black-and-white ink drawing. It’s full of rich texture, from the bark of the tree to the criss-cross of the burlap in our hanged figure’s costume.

The question to ask yourself is, is this a scarecrow, an effigy, or some poor, unfortunate soul?

Above, you can see the fine detail of the rope, the bark, and the creepy burlap-sack mask. Below, the tree looms large in its frame, an unseen wind gently blowing the figure off true.
