Rox Corbett – The Brinton 101
Born 1956, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.
Rox Corbett’s drawings are made exclusively with charcoal. Instead of being loose sketches her drawings are detailed and textural, and, she hopes, a little moody. She believes charcoal is capable of more depth and richness than pencil ever can be. Rox uses hand-made tools to rub into compressed charcoal sticks and then dry-paints the material onto the paper. Charcoal pencils are used for the sharp edges, big charcoal sticks for the depths, and erasers to reverse the dark as one would in scratchboard.
