Newer works - late 2011 Number 1: Craft/Art
I have been working with noted designer/typographer and letterpress guru David Jury, as we plan a joint venture in 2012; an edition merging both our – very different – working methodologies and styles.
It's particularly exciting for me because David's relish of traditional print process and quality materials is a world away from what I myself exploit for my editions to date.
The piece will derive imagery and thinking from debates on what divides art from craft, and where qualities of one cross over into the other.
Her are a couple of my developmental rough sketches; ideas made into lines of ink that have then been scanned and made into pixels.
