Scribbling In The Gallery

20 Nov

Today was the start of the Swansea Open 2021 show at the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery. It’s been going for many years but had to be put on hold last year because of Covid19. There’s usually a big opening event but this year people had to book time slots and although it was busy, it wasn’t crowded. As I get older I suffer more and more from “museum fatigue”, walking very slowly and standing and looking for a few hours is surprisingly tiring, so I sat for a while and had a bit of a scribble just before we left. There’s my painting on the bottom right – “Eighteen People, Two Dogs And A Cat”. It’s a painting based on our family Zoom quizzes during Covid19 lockdown. I’m chuffed it got in.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage 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.

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