INSPIRED EXHIBITION

QUARR ABBEY MARCH 7 TO 11 2015

Artists Statement

 

INSPIRED by the monumental charcoal drawings of Dennis Creffield I visited several island churches to develop my own interpretation using charcoal which has aways been my favoured medium .   I then became interested in the architectural features in the buildings and  began reworking my sketches to produce colourful images.

 

Departing from the large scale work of my charcoal drawings and self-taught in mono and screen-printing techniques the works became smaller and colourful bringing energy and life to the  grey world of the buildings and churchyards.   The results are an unconventional interpretation using vibrant colours, sometimes discordant.
