The End of Our Rope.

Illustrator Huguette Despault May produces some extraordinarily detailed drawings that attempt to translate the characteristics of human beings. The Hawser Series depicts a series of ropes unraveling and coming undone. May explains on his website:

“In the drawing I encountered abundant physicality: ‘muscle’ ‘hairy-ness’ and ‘sinew’ which lead to meditating on the many evocative rope-derived idioms and aphorisms embedded in the English language. These often referred colorfully and metaphorically to the human condition: ‘end of one’s tether’, ‘at loose ends’ and ‘all strung out’ being but a few examples. Beyond its former utility at sea, this industrial-strength tether has served anew as an elegant model for my graphical musings on the strands of our human strengths and frailties.”
