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.
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.
