2017 Printed Monotype Abstracts

The Beautiful Death of a Cell

This work was inspired by an essential life saving biological process called apoptosis. This is a process where your own cells effectively hit a kill switch to self destruct. They do this in response to the fact that they have an dangerous glitch in their fundamental biology, for example hold a cancer mutation.

The self destruction  therefore is a self sacrificing response to defend the greater whole e.g. you.

2019 – The stilled life of jugs bottles and mugs

Still Life

The rich world of cubism, post cubism, the post war St Ives communities and current day British contemporary artists has inspired this series of still life works. I am drawn in by the search for the simplification, iconic image, almost hieroglyphic forms we can use to portray the everyday objects such as bottle, jug and mug. The layering of viewpoints and the translucency of objects adds further information to the final composition.

2018 Printed Monotype Abstracts

This is a series of Monotypes created in 2018 by layering intaglio inks onto a steel plate and hand pulling through an intaglio press. After multiple layers these pieces were further worked on with a variety of media such as soft pastels, oil pastels, acrylic inks and paints, graphite etc, what ever each piece demanded to ultimately reach its resting composition.

Inspiration was drawn from the a variety of sensory stimuli fused with memories of childhood summer holidays whilst walking and sketching in the Derbyshire countryside.
