‘And they wondered what it meant’ Rudyard Kipling


‘And they wondered what it meant’ Rudyard Kipling. A hand made original photoetching using oil based etching ink on 250 gsm Somerset paper

As we see more we learn there is so much more that we don’t understand on the journey through life. It is our curiosity that makes us human and gives rise to our creativity and progress. The image of these two people setting off on their journey into the wide open world reminded me of Rudyard Kipling’s story ‘The cat that walked by himself’. ‘Out in the Wet Wild Woods all the wild animals gathered together where they could see the light of the fire a long way off, and they wondered what it meant’.

This photo etching was created from a photograph taken in the Austrian mountains.

The artwork is titled, numbered, signed and dated on the front.

My paintings and hand made prints present observations and thoughts on life today. I am concerned with accumulated influences and legacy and am currently working on a series of landscape related works that are closely linked to my local surroundings and those who live and have lived here.   As well as being selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2012 & 2013 and selected for the V&A collections,  my work is exhibited with i-contemporary art at the Affordable Art Fair Hampstead,  has been selected for exhibition with the Printmakers Council, the Mall Galleries. In 2015 I have for the first time exhibited as a guest artist with a solo show at Original Features Gallery for the annual curated Crouch End Open Studios.
