Trying Things Out 1

25 Jan

Had a lovely few hours in the Waun Wen Community Centre this afternoon, making collages with some students from Swansea University. We’ve recently been out in the area making textural rubbings (Koh-i-noor graphite and Ho-sho paper) and blue sunprints (cyanotypes) and these are going to be used to make collage kits for local residents who fancy having a go. The pandemic lockdowns have forced us to re-think how we work. Normally we do art in the real world but through the past 18 months, arts activities by Zoom or artkits for home delivery have become the new normal. So today we tried out our ideas and worked out what we need to put into the kits.

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.
