“The Family” 2015 Gouache on paper

In recent months I have concentrated on a series of works on paper on the theme of a family group. This is a theme that has been explored by many artists and I am particularly drawn to the images of Henry Moore during his “bomb shelter” era. I used my own family as a reference, assembling them to make a tableaux then expanding on basic this configuration to explore distortion and other structural variations.

Most of these works began as a simple monotype line drawing, and were taken in different directions using gouache, ink and pastel.
