Having just retired, partly through frustration at the lack of studio time afforded by full time employment (but more of that later). I have been catching up with the things I’ve been doing/not doing with my evenings and weekends. As a first post for a while here are some images I made around Easter. Ash Wednesday Variations.
This was the first begun and you can see where I got the eyes wrong and had to cover them with paper tape and redraw.
This one was next.
Then this one. All made from a self portrait photograph by my wife. I was listening to a recording of TS Eliot reading ‘Ash Wednesday’ and it was Ash Wednesday (?).
I have been playing around with using text in conjunction with these images.
congratulations on your retirement Ian. look f/wds to hearing about how you get on with studio space, ad
Thanks Adam. I’m hoping to look around Portland Place next week through Axisweb. Fingers crossed for other projects too.
