The First Of Four ….

28 Feb

The first of the manhole series completed.

I’ve completed my series of four screenprints, inspired by my recent residency on the Waun Wen area of the city. Here’s the first, combining the images of three local manhole covers (from photos taken by Melvyn Williams), with text featuring local Welsh place names and their English translation. These transport us back to a time before the Industrial Revolution when the area was rural and unspoilt. Delightful.

Working with residents and students.

I set up some screen printing stations on the last few Tuesdays at the community centre and invited local residents to come and join me and have a go, with engineering students from Swansea University who were getting some experience of the arts. It’s been a wonderful project and I’m sorry it’s over, but I’m looking forward having a rest!

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 artefacts 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.
