The Name Game

21 Mar

21 stu 1

One of the things I find hard to do is think up names for my artworks. I don’t want to number them #1, #2, #3 and so on. And I don’t like to label them ‘Untitled’, so I often struggle to name a piece. This little lino block of a dancing March hare was easy though.

Obvious really. Disco ‘Rabbit’ Stu. 😉

Based on an original drawing, cut into lino, printed onto Japanese lightweight hand-made paper with black oil-based litho/relief ink using a Colombian Press at Swansea Print Workshop.

 

Senedd

The Senedd, the Welsh Parliament, the site yesterday evening for an arts event showcasing the culture of the city of Swansea. My chum, Melanie Ezra and I were asked to curate a small exhibition of visual art and some ‘live’ art as well. Here are two of my ‘live’ drawings next to Jonathan Green’s cow-in-a-microwave-on-a-plinth and Graham Parker’s sea diptych. I drew onto newspaper with chalk, compressed charcoal and a yellow ochre oil bar.

Here’s a wider view of the amazing Senedd building. The canapes were lovely 😀
