These extraordinary works are from emerging artist Jessie Babin, a Nova Scotia College of Art and Design grad who just won an invitational student art competition for her works in charcoal on paper.
Above, Babin’s winning entry, The Fall, is “a self-portrait that captures vivid dream imagery and a sense of falling that expresses time as frozen yet eternal.” – Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art.
