My postcards created for the International Postcard Show at the Surface Gallery in Nottingham. I used blue, white and gold ink and various paper ephemera on the postcard base, the building drawings are acrylic ink on kraft brown paper.

I’ve tried to show how the gold ink catches the light in the last two images.

The opening night for the show is 12th January and is on until 10th February.

New Artworks

royal hospital artwork

graingers lane atwork

 

1: Royal Hospital, acrylic ink, ink pen, image transfer on paper, 40 x 30 cm

2: Grainger’s Lane, acrylic ink, ink pen, image transfer on paper, 40 x 30 cm

Each artwork has layers of image transferred vintage diagrams, maps and text relating to each building/area.

Both buildings have been empty for quite a few years. The Royal Hospital is currently being taken down, there are plans to use the land for new housing. The building on Grainger’s Lane was once a pub but now sits condemned on the street corner.

These pieces are in The Art Yard’s current exhibition, mentioned in my previous post.
