New Artwork: Decay

decay artwork

Decay, acrylic ink and fineliner on paper, 44 x 34cm. For this piece I used a photo of an abandoned building in Bayern/Bavaria taken by https://www.instagram.com/artsbyxd/

Recently I’m loving experimenting with the contrast of an inky background overlaid with more structured forms. I do want to add a little more of an abstract feel to upcoming artworks.

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.

New Artwork- Night Drive

Night Drive Artwork

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.
