Drawing: mixed media

This mixed media drawing was on display at the 10th Anniversary Exhibition of Perthshire Open Studios in Perth Civic Hall. The exhibition was part of the inaugural Platform Festival, a week-long celebration of contemporary art and culture across Perth & Kinross at the end of March 2017.

The Second of Winter Solstice

The drawing was inspired by a friend’s poem about his vision of winter solstice:
“on that day creatures living under rocks crawl to sit on long stems of the moon flower” […]
“all red turns pink takes a breather and returns to green and all shall be well for one second”.
Gerhard Kress 2016

The Perthshire Creates Designers and Makers exhibition

My latest series of monochrome linoprints will be on display in this group exhibition at Perth Museum & Art Gallery. Work from over twenty creatives represents the contemporary nature of artwork currently being inspired and developed within the area. The series of linoprints is based on the museum’s collection of photos of lost buildings of Perth. The atmosphere and the old traditional architectural details captured in these images appeal to me and I have translated the mood in these old photographs through the medium of linocutting, applying my style of transforming through condensing and accentuating.
