Initially inspired by old, worn out gardening gloves and hand-knitted structures, Imagined Landscapes 2015/2016 is a series of small scale etchings: hinting at ancient rocks, river beds, pathways and long gone dwellings. The viewer is invited to construct thier own narrative as they navigate these deamlike landscapes.
This then is my starting point for a new body of work. I invite you to follow the twists and turns in this series of journeys real and imagined at The Crypt Gallery St Ives, Cornwall, UK August 2016.
Shown here are a series of small scale, soft ground etchings. Imagined Landscape 1 and 2 include chine-colle whilst Imagined landsacpes 3, 4 and 5 are layered and hand stitched. Combined image size is 14cm x 31.5cm, paper size is 21.5cm x 50cm, umframed.
Framed in simple white wood frame, Imagined Landscapes 3 and 4 can be viewed in Galleria St Ives, 5, Tregenna Hill, St Ives TR26 1SE UK.
