Artist's description:

"Underwater Cathedral" £150. Inspiration - Peterborough Cathedral. The gothic fan vaulting looks a little like scallop shells.

I have always had romantic associations with the sea ever since I was child and have, throughout my life as an artist produced a great deal of fantasy art. I have a particular fondness for mermaids and fairies -something that has also stemmed from childhood which has remained with me ever since. I have derived my inspiration for these etching from illustrators such as Arthur Rackham, Aubrey Beardsley and some of the Victorian fairy painters such as Richard Dad. I am also inspired by Gothic and Eastern Architecture as well as incorporating more organic influences from Gaudi (Spanish architect) and Art Nouveau. I use crosshatching to explore space, perspective, contours, organic and architectural structures, textures and curves as well as concentric and geometric designs.

For a definition of the etching process, please refer to the monochrome Sea Spirits pressing which I uploaded the day before.

Materials used:

Original hand drawn line etching on zinc inked and pressed onto paper.
