A Patchwork Of Landscape

6 Sep

Brynamman

Husb and I went to visit family in the countryside a few miles out of the city earlier. I wanted to do some charcoal drawing in my Khadi sketchbook so we drove up above Brynamman into the hills. The area is large and bleak, with few significant features which made it hard to draw as there is no particular focus. I concentrated on the shapes formed by natural, agricultural and industrial features. They’ve all left an imprint on a vast scale, turning the landscape into a patchwork of abstract shapes and patterns.

 

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

In this one, I combine some of the images with snippets of text of things my Nana used to say. She used to take me to Swansea Museum a lot when I was little and I could hear her voice in the back of my head as I was sitting and drawing the birds and bugs.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
