2019. Ink on paper. 51 x 72 cm.

Black Rain depicts a wide-angle on a dark vista. The surface is highly textured and pitted with salt crystals. A combination of a black and a white ink produce blue-grey crusts on the mountainous structures, and pools near the bottom of the painting. There is constant movement through the surface as ink falls from the top, fighting against a damn-like border. Figures to the right struggle to keep on the surface as the valley fills with black liquid.
