Artist's description:

In the fertile chaos and proliferation of our image-saturated culture and against a
back-drop of the media’s obsession with unattainable male & female beauty, these ‘photo-drawings’ aim to reassert the beauty of the well-worn human face and the marks made on it by full and eventful lives.

Hovering between drawing and photography the ‘photo-drawings’ subvert the idea of the
photograph’s ability to present reality. These images rework photographic sources in a
new-take on the notion of the postmodern copy. Their power lies in that they cannot or will not allow themselves to be fully grasped; they look like, and are, drawings rendered in lines, dots and squiggles but ‘photoshop’ filters remain as the palimpsest beneath these marks.

This image is a limited edition of fifty prints and is signed and numbered on the front. It is sold unframed but if you appreciate the double mount (cream & gold) and/or the frame please contact me and I will quote you a price. Each print has been individually embossed with my SdR logo.

Materials used:

Fine line pen. tissue paper. Polymer coated metal plate. Gold Ink. Printing Press.
