The Working Proof: Catherine Ryan - Man with Two Bears

We just released this new print over at The Working Proof - Man with Two Bears, by Catherine Ryan. This is a giclee print on Hahnemuhle German etching paper of an original charcoal drawing of a man posing with two dead bears. I love how Catherine uses the color of the paper and varying opacities of black to give depth to the drawing.

Catherine's work investigates the relationships that exist between humans and the natural world, and the tension that is created when wild creatures are viewed in close proximity with mankind.

15% of the gross sale of this print goes to Puppies Behind Bars. Buy the print here and read our interview with Catherine here.


  1. This work is so full of details, the thecnique is wonderful on the bears, so real and intense.
