These pieces above are produced using coloured pencils, this in itself is quite a soft tool for such a powerful subject matter. The use of colour pencil suggests a certain realness to the piece especially with this very real style of drawing. There is something about the spatial element within the piece that normalises the evil in  similar way to Tuymans. The limited nature allows the viewer to create there own evil.
