An insightful glimpse into what it is like to be part of a convivial posse of zebras – and two of them seem to be checking that I’m still aboard their Grevy Train! A charming, realistic work in charcoal that would look superb in a safari-styled lounge – and equally good in a conservatory or large garden room.

Monochromatic art often appeals for its subtleties, which have charmed aesthetic tastes throughout the ages. Similarly, charcoal is a beautiful and traditional medium of choice for many artists. In this piece, Cory Salmond has worked the medium heavily over the paper, turning the usually soft and fine appearance of charcoal into a strikingly contrasted illustration. An easy work to incorporate within your interior, monochromatic artworks always add a chic finish. The subject matter would connect with anyone interested in wildlife, although it’s not until you learn the title that you understand the significance of the endangered Grevy’s Zebra.

Cory Salmond‘s Grevy Train takes on a hypnotic effect as it incorporates an element of abstraction into realism. The enhanced use of contrast in this piece highlights its monochromatic appeal while challenging the viewer’s mind. Although the artwork itself is greyscale, in reality the subjects of this piece are also black and white. The perspective of the piece further enhances the viewer’s experience by adding an almost satiric overtone to the work.
