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?
