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.
Night Drive, acrylic ink on canvas textured paper, 117.8 x 1012.6cm
The next piece in my Gotye Project.
There’s been a long gap between the last piece and this one just because I’ve been busy with many other things.
This one came together pretty easily as I had the image in my head for a while- the ink itself has a pretty organic form in that I let it do it’s own thing on the paper. I like that the ink picked up the texture of the paper beneath it, I didn’t have to add any extra texture to the piece
This is one of my favourite songs on the Like Drawing Blood album- you can listen to the song here on Youtube.
