Ink_d Gallery Brighton

Great trip down to the south Coast today to see Dan @Ink_d gallery – they are between shows at the moment and preparing for UK renegade potter and leading anarchist Carrie Reichardt representing the Great British Empire as ‘Cruel Britannia’ through her unique anarchic vision.  Still the gallery looks great even in its interim period and well worth a visit for the range of artwork on display.  I had made the trip to talk through some of the newest pieces I had produced and left a couple there with them.. Not sure when they will surface in the gallery but I love what they do there and the range of other artists they represent. I was also signing the piece ‘protection’ which had recently sold and leaving some small postcard pieces – little curio’s which based around ink spills. . . .

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.

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.
