This is a limited edition of screenprints, created and handprinted by me in Bristol!
The print is based on loose gestural drawings made from life very quickly, these were from poses of around two minutes in length. I aim to capture the human figure with the minimum of lines and marks, using loose swathes of ink to keep the figure dynamic. In this series of drawings I play with the negative space leaving out any reference to the clothing of the model, encouraging the viewer to become involved, filling in the blanks themselves.
I have manipulated the originals digitally, adding a dot screen effect to describe the shading effect of the original in a modern way.
There are two 'companion' pieces to this print available and they look great hung together in a group of three.
