In 2017 I was invited to exhibit a work on paper for A Collector’s Exhibition at Aldeburgh Gallery. The exhibition featured works by some wonderful artists: Emily Sutton, Mark Hearld, Tessa Newcomb, Alex Malcolmson, Mary Fedden, Maggi Hambling, Julian Trevelyan, Michael Stennet and many others.
After creating my book, Black Shuck’s Awful Alphabet, I wanted to create a paper sculpture to further investigate the East Anglian folk tales of Black Shuck.
First I created the prints using direct drawn monoprint (the trees) and block prints (Black Shuck, the magpies and the forest floor). Once dry, I cut up the prints to create the paper sculptures.
