The Artist Drawing in the Morning at Home



The Artist Drawing in the Morning at Home

Print description

The artist, in a moment of inspiration, rushes to his table to capture that fleeting spark before it is forgotten. Hours pass in assessment and labor, for inspiration without work comes to nothing. The artist, surrounded by his lifetime’s collection of knick-knacks: Georgian sherry glasses, a Victorian pewter teapot, a lamp from Harrods, is bathed in the morning light that comes through the large window— a moment of domestic bliss.

Print details

To create this print, I start by crafting individual drawings in ink, which collectively form a collage comprising the final piece. I scan my drawings and digitally add colour. The original design solely exists in digital format, and I print it using archival inks and paper. I then release my design as a limited edition print, available in standard ‘A’ sizes, ranging from A0 (84.1 cm x 118.9 cm) to A4 (21 x 29.7 cm).

Domestic Interior and self expression

This work echoes many different sources: from Vuillard’s colourful depictions of the domestic interior. Many of which I saw at Pallant House Gallery in 2022, to the Alekos Fassianos Foundation I visited in Athens in the summer of 2023. It also draws inspiration from the recent exhibition in summer 2024 at Studio Voltaire in London, which featured a pairing of work by Beryl Cook and Tom of Finland.

I have been running a life drawing session in Brighton for many years; the depiction of the human form is something that fascinates me. Through these pieces, I aimed to express my own personal experience my own and the environment where I live.
