Going back to Painting has proved to be a massive challenge, as well as immensely rewarding. Having spent many years developing my practice through printmaking the phrase 'working out of my comfort zone' is to put it mildly. However, there's no gain without pain and despite the challenges i'm loving the possibilities that are opening up by combining painting with printmaking.
I'm currently working on a group of larger scale mixed media paintings on canvas inspired by drawings based on the 'Nostos' series of prints.
For these pieces I have been primarily exploring ways to produce larger scale multilayered mono print drawings which are then additionally painted into with oil paint after being applied to canvas.
'A Sheltered Place', Dry point and mono print. One of 7 works currently on show at Art Nest Gallery, Hitchin alongside a collection of Printmakers represented by the Gallery.
Super busy day today helping out at the Art Nest Gallery, hanging the new exhibition 'Fine Art Printmakers' which opens tomorrow. This show runs throughout February. http://www.theartnest.com/artists/4582687588 Read More
