missing shop


in other news it would appear that there is some kind of 'bug' in my shop at the moment, depending on which link you follow it is either empty or just not there. i haven't managed to get any kind of response from Etsy about this yet! Thanks to a persistent follower for bringing this to my attention.

layers

3rd february: insistent weight
pencil, block printing ink and burning on salvaged hardback book cover with found handwriting

notes: a new piece completed yesterday for a shop update later on this month. my work over the past year or so has become more and more about a selection process and building layers over periods of time. my pile of incomplete pieces is always growing and with each burst of creativity in the studio i select a handful of pieces with initial marks on to see if i might be able to offer a new and pleasing aspect to them. sometimes it works as with yesterday's piece above, with a couple of other pieces put aside, most returned to the 'pile' and one for the bin as it went beyond the point of salvage. subject matter as always is unchanging, the idea of the intangible made definite is constantly alluring and motivates me creatively no end.
