AN EXPLORATION INTO PRINTMAKING and ink
Stories - Artwork description
Since the beginning of time, people have told stories - in words, paint and gesture. Creating, dreaming, retelling and remembering is at the heart of every culture - and is the basis of who we are as human beings.
Stories are as numerous as individuals, and yet this artwork pays tribute to threads of commonality that tie together our beautiful, diverse heritage. It seeks to acknowledge differences, whilst depicting underlying themes and emotions that hold stories together, including love, fear, loyalty and betrayal.
Legends are unique and varied but if you look closer, there is the same heart beneath them all, the heart that makes us human. In 2020 we are moving forward to tell new stories about the world and about ourselves; about the worlds we want to create. This artwork is about looking to the past, the future, and most of all, our shared passion and unity, regardless of age, gender, religion or race.
