I thought it was time I shared a few photo’s of the Artist in Residence studio here at Fiskars – in the basement of the apartment.  It is sparsely appointed, but I’ve got it looking productively messy, and the school’s etching press that happens to be being stored in the back room at the moment is getting a workout.  Finally a look back out the door and down the hill, past the SIWA (small grocery store) and to the new carpark.  From my desk I can watch the constant too-ing and fro-ing of locals going to SIWA, and the tourists and visitors crossing the market from their cars to the craft shops and galleries.  For a town with 600 residents it manages to feel quite busy.




into the studio – and back out again

October 23, 2008

Leaves featured pretty heavilly in my ephemeral work durring autumn, but have been featuring less frequently lately. They have, however, been making their way into the studio more and more. Leaves have been getting drawn, drawn on, printed on, and printed with!

And then after that they sometimes make their way back out of the studio again – altered, yet still simple leaves, taken back to the source.

recent prints

I thought it was time I put up some images of some prints lest anyone should think I had abandoned traditional practice altogether. I don’t think I will ever stop wanting to make prints, no mater what else I might also want to do as well. The last few months I have been working on a series of etchings. So far I have only used two copper plates, created using a relatively simple technique which nonetheless creates intricate results. By arranging portions of these plates on the paper and using simple masking techniques, a series of compositions can be created and figurative elements added. As you can see, empty spaces are an important part of these prints too.
