Taking Liberties

2 Jul

Here’s another life drawing from yesterday evening’s session at Swansea Print Workshop. I use standard sheets of paper and rarely cut them into another shape, which I suppose is a bit lazy. It’s often difficult to fit the subject into the paper without either cutting bits off or having lots of empty space. I love the work of the Austrian artist Egon Schiele, who happily distorted human figures to fit his paper, so I gave it a go with this one. Our model isn’t shaped like this, I took liberties.

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.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left and to see the complete image.

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