About the Work
"This portrait of a man depicted in Mina Arndt’s charcoal drawing is full of emotion, with the contrast adding and amplifying it. The look in his eyes make me feel as if he is analysing me and who I am. There are no colours in this work, which I think helps the viewer to not be distracted from the details in his face."
- Freyja Wrigglesworth, 'My Choice' exhibition series, September 2022
