International Postcard Show 2016

postcard sightseeing

postcard together

1] Sightseeing, mixed media postcard, 6 x 4 inches

2] Together, mixed media postcard, 6 x 4 inches

Two postcards I sent off to Nottingham for Surface Gallery’s International Postcard Show. Both postcards have a base of paper ephemera- a mixture of train tickets and car park ticket stubs with acrylic ink, watercolour and ink pens. Together has found vintage anatomy images- the heart in the middle has also been cut apart and hand stitched together with black thread.

Will be nice to start off this year with an exhibition with artists from around the world.

Inktober and Drawlloween days 15-20

A little bit of a catch up post to upload my drawings from the past couple of days.

Each image has a caption to show the prompt for each day- thought it would be easier that way rather than just listing them all.

New Artwork- Faces

faces-mixed media artwork

Faces, mixed media on handmade paper, 14x21cm

I’m not quite sure where I was going with this- probably more of a warm up piece if anything. As you can see, I’m quite excited that next month is October.

Inktober #8

inktober_8_watermark

|Inktober #8|

A small skull for today’s drawing. This is very scratchy and a little heavy-handed, not a good art day in general.

Beautifully stormy outside but still a terrible mood all day for some reason. Hopefully after quite a few cups of tea and a peaceful sleep I can feel better tomorrow.

New Artwork Box frame- Sit and Stir

DSC_0494

Sit and Stir, paper, ceramic, paint, ink, collage in box frame, 11.5 x 11.5cm

Another box frame completed with a shard of my broken mug.

I have two pieces left of the mug but they’re much larger than this, may have to get a couple of larger frames as i really do love making these.

I’m also thinking about selling them, will have to be in the UK however as I’d be worried about them surviving shipping overseas.

Artwork: Fractals

Fractals_5

Fractals, ink and acrylic paint on cotton fabric, 14.5cm x 9cm.

My first artwork based on one of the poems in Loqui by Greg Webster I bought a few months ago.

I based a lot of the imagery in the piece on the first two verses of Fractals:

 

On the rocks

where her skull opened

to set free and scatter

scarlet butterflies in their millions

 

alongside the shoreside

the cliff rise

the dark coastal crush

where the monochrome

a long exposure 

of cliff erosion

I plan on making a few more of these over the next few weeks.

Purchase Loqui here

It’s a highly recommended purchase from me.
