Stamping!

5 Jul

I’m going to be running some creative training sessions soon and one of them is going to be about stamping. That’s not moving your feet up and down with force, but the practice of creating new artworks from rubber – or lino or wood – stamps. I’ve been doing some work in this technique, inspired by artists Atif Khan, Ryan McGinnis and Federico Pietrella. Here are some different ways I’ve been using a stamp I had made from a screenprint I did of my hero, German artist Käthe Kollwitz. On the left, a ‘mashup’ with a newspaper fragment; in the middle a 3D construction from Shiohara paper and aluminium armature wire; on the right a stitched piece with chine collé.

 

Here are some examples of work from other artists using stamps too. From left to right, Federico Pietrella, Ryan McGinnis, Atif Khan.

 

 

 

 

For a limited period I am putting a new drawing from my recent sketch books on my Artfinder gallery every day.  If you’d like to check them out, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

 

 

Kollwitz Mashups

26 Oct

mashup-4

I’ve been doing some little mashups with my Käthe Kollwitz stamped prints and some newspaper. They’re stuck onto the windows of Galerie Simpson where I’ve been doing an artist’s residency for the past 3 weeks.

On Saturday I’m having an Open Studio from 10.00 – 16.00 with tea and home-made cakes and the art I’ve been making while I’ve been here. Please pop in 😀

 

There’s more of my art to be seen in my online Gallery in Artfinder, please click on the image below to take a look. Thank you.
