Out Of The Attic….Into The Sunset

23 Jan

Zoom 1

At last I’ve got the confidence to get stuck into a painting that isn’t a copy of one of the greats or a portrait of my cat. I’ve spent my life drawing and printmaking, rarely painting, so this is pretty new for me. I re-used a large canvas I tried painting on about 8 years ago – I didn’t like it and it’s been up the attic ever since. I didn’t white it out because I don’t like what I call “the tyrrany of the white”, whether it’s paper or canvas, I prefer some colour and texture to work on top of. It looks abstract now, but this is just the beginning …. there’s lots more to come.

After, Husb and I went out for our one-hour, government-sanctioned, socially-distanced, masked and sanitised walk and passed Amber Hiscott’s beautiful glass leaf in Castle Square glowing in the setting sun. I’ve always loved this artwork and it was exceptionally lovely today.

 

 

 

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.

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