Rubbings In The Cold

23 Jan

I was out and about in Waun Wen in Swansea today, with two students from Swansea University who are working with me on the arts project. It’s been a grey and bitterly cold day, but we spent 2 hours walking the streets, making graphite rubbings of the different textures of the area – street metal covers, trees, walls and pavements. We’ll use these to make collage kits over the next week or two. We used Koh-i-Noor Progresso Jumbo Woodless 6B graphite sticks (cut in half, I’m thrifty) and Ho-sho Japanese paper.

Part of the Home and Hinterland community arts project in partnership with Swansea University’s Taliesin Arts Centre.

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.
