I have been working on hand drawn collages (80 x 80cm), preparatory work for large scale screen-printed collages on board. Lot’s of lines……..
I have been working on a series of drawings and quick collages as preparatory work for some new screen prints. I plan to make some prints in small editions this autumn. I am enjoying exploring the interconnected languages of line, composition, colour, texture and 3 dimensional space within the picture plane.
I moved into a wonderful new studio in April 2018 at Grays Wharf, Penryn. There are 9 studios, home to a mixture of painters, photographers, ceramicists and illustrators. Over the last few months I have been working on a series of collages with acrylic paint and screen-prints on board. over the autumn I will be working on a screen-printed edition.
I spent a wonderful week on the 'Abstract Painting, Falmouth school of Art Intensive' at Falmouth University, earlier this month. I was exploring combining collage with paint. I took along some imagery I had printed from my drawings, and worked these into a composition with painted areas. I plan to develop this further in 2018, working with printed collage and paint on board. For more images click here.
After 6 months of pens, ink, scalpel and glue, I have now scanned all my collages and drawings. The images have then been printed onto acetate ready to be transferred to screens for screen-printing.
