Mixed Media

Mixed Media

In my mixed media works I use a variety of processes before arriving at a final outcome.

These works combine my scanned pencil drawings with photographic imagery to create layers of visual information using Photoshop. The composite images are printed onto rag paper and further developed by hand, using pencil, colour pencil, pen and gouache.

These studies are an attempt to explore the randomness of visual outcomes that will occur when a forceful body of moving water interacts with the solidity of dense rock. Creating space and movement, capturing the energy of the moment.

Rhythm and pattern can be easily identified in waves and rocks; these studies rearrange the familiar into personal, visual responses based on close observation and experience.
