Mini Monochromes

A collection of small ink and graphite drawings exploring temporary land, water and skyscapes. Work includes drawings of the night sky, tide lines of coal dust, deserted buildings and silted pavements after recent floods.

“I like the simplicity of using a black and white palette and modest, traditional materials such as ink and pencil, particularly now, at a time when we’re constantly bombarded by digital imagery.  

Subjects are diverse but all stem from a preoccupation with transient landscapes, most recently being the new landscapes created following local floods. Rivers changed course and new water bodies were created; transforming, shifting and depositing materials.”   Catherine Higham, Nov 2019
