Art is...


These drawings are an example of a little playful exercise I like to do for my own pleasure really. It is very rare any of these end up as a finished print. I enjoy taking an image and reworking or restructuring it in as many ways as I can think of.

I explore playing with the lines, shapes and marks, pattern and simplification of the image to see what visual results I come up with. These are all drawn with felt pen, lead  and coloured pencil and some watercolour. Each images is approximately 18cms x 8cms in size.

These posts are meant to offer simple observations about what what art is. They are my response to that question.  I don’t think these are absolute answers but I hope they will encourage you to observe, think and debate to develop (or reinforce) your own definitions of “art”.More of my ‘art’ can be seen at my online gallery by clicking HERE
