Monochromes

A collection of small ink and graphite drawings exploring temporary land, water and skyscapes.

“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

During Lockdown 2020-2021, I have continued this series looking at landscapes close to home.  Woodland, water and sky are common themes living in a valley; with forests, reservoirs and hills within easy reach.

 

Three of these pieces are up for auction here alongside work by other artists to help raise funds and support ‘Grow’ – a youth development charity that works with vulnerable young people in Sheffield.   The auction finishes on the 14th February 2021.
