Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery will be holding an exhibition of Birmingham Printmakers work. The exhibition runs from Saturday 19th October into the New Year. I have two pieces in the exhibition: Moths and Bell Jar and Cirque du l’Escargot.
I will also be giving a talk at the gallery on Monday 18th November 12 – 1pm
This is my current piece just completed. I am exploring a few different colour variations but the one depicted is an edition of 40.
I have used mostly wood engraving print techniques, but also some more spontaneous processes such as mono and stencil.
The bell jar is an old Victorian one found in a Biology lab. It alludes towards a scientific neutrality, but of course is loaded with connotations and it’s own specific character.
The moths have a slight malevolent feel. Although frozen you can still imagine their papery wings hitting the bell jar.
