Paris Showdown

I have entered this piece in the Paris Showdown, apparently the top 128 entrants are able to enter the physical work into the Paris exhibition so fingers crossed, would love to show Parassita there. If you have the time you can vote for the piece here http://www.saatchionline.com/showdown/match/showdown/5/artist/75921/art/1231839

Spring..

Experimenting with masked out shapes and bird forms. I have included the sketch and mid point work on this piece to give an idea of development.

Work in progress .. I gots to go

Working on a new piece at the moment but gotta break to go get some frames soon – here’s where it’s at…

Roots, ink and rooibos tea on watercolour paper

Just finished this piece and pleased with the way the colour works with this type of tea.  Also working the roots was a very fluid process, would enjoy making an abstract piece made up entirely of this type of form.

New Giclee Prints Available

Small size giclee prints are now available of 2 new pieces, ‘The Discovery’ and ‘The Vine’.
The Vine, painted in a combination of Ink, Brandy Vodka and Whisky  will appear at London Miles’ March exhibition of vices – you can find out more here

The prints, produced as signed giclee editions onto Hahnemuhle archival watercolour paper in a limited edition of 25 each are signed by the artist and are available for £75.00 each here

Flower of Life – Lightbox

Back from the Signal Gallery’s private view showing Dan Baldwin’s work – Stunning new canvas piece ‘Cyclone’.
Thought I’d publish the image of the first large scale backlit drawing ‘Flower of Life’.  The final piece will be housed in a large lightbox (yet to be designed and built)

Flower of life..

Wasn’t aware of this geometrical design until today – going to use it as the starting point for 2 new pieces 1 small and one large quadrant piece to work alongside closer.

I have photographed this piece with the inks still wet, this is exactly the effect that I am achieving working with Harwood King using varnish layers on the prints.. it helps to give a real vibrancy to the colour.

Closer

Finished work on the 1 metre square piece Closer, was a challenge working both in a quadrant format and also at that scale in pen ink and of course tea.
Closer illustrates our connection to nature as a two way relationship, our dependency and our appreciation
