Sondra Meszaros creates large-scale charcoal drawings on vellum that explore mythology, natural history, and personal narratives, using animals as surrogates. In renderings of swans, birds, wolves, and deer, figuration verges on abstraction, conjuring a sense of mystery around the creatures. Her work relates to her childhood in rural Ontario where animals were central to her life, leading to a lifelong fascination with the stories and myths surrounding them. Remembering the experience of hunting with her family, Meszaros develops a parallel between the power of drawing and hunting: “I explore both the obsession of the hunter and the vulnerability of the deer.”
