This new blog follows my current activity in printmaking while on artist's residency at the University of Suffolk
New page, Teaching, has been added with examples of personal artwork in painting, drawing and mixed media. Also examples of my teaching sketchbooks, student artwork and student sketchbooks.
Some project work developing ideas within printmaking as well as collage, and recording the progress are on my a-n artists talking blog:
The idea for Supplements was to take the predictable pages of colour supplements with all their unreality, untruth and unreliability and recreate images that obscure, challenge or reinvent the meanings and references of the originals. The works created all went through processes of collage, transformation and reformatting into series in different formats. This series took six sets of six original images that were cut through and reorganised to create a total of 36 collage images. They were then scanned and computer processed to create the Supplement mini magazine editions. The Postfashion series were an off-shoot by product taking the imagery to screenprint on envelope interiors which were cut and collated into more collages.
The two series were adapted for a collaborative project and exhibition called Discarded Made Beautiful.
