Tales from the Garden

 

About the Monoprints

I make these ‘printed paintings’ by painting directly onto transparent acrylic plates which can be wiped and worked into before printing onto paper through the press. It enables me to work directly with colour and a brush and captures the energy of the marks and brushstrokes. ‘Mono’ means that these are one off images – not editions. Some of the works are made with one pressing whilst others are more intense and have several layers of inks printed in maybe four or five pressings.

 

 

About Carborundum Prints

These are made using carborundum – fine grit- which is painted onto a card plate using varnish. The gritty surface when inked up holds the ink and gives an intense colour and texture to the resulting print. This series which is inspired by imagined events in ‘The Garden of Eden’, explores the theme of discovery and experience.

The imagery can be festive and exhilarating, quiet and sensitive or dark and suggestive. Like the tales, rhymes and proverbs which kindle her creative vision, Adrienne’s art playfully reveals fundamental truths about human nature. It also champions the imagination and good story telling.

The female figure representing ‘Eve’ may well refer to the artist herself. Adrienne say’s that ‘They are naive and playful souls discovering their environment.’ The simple, but emphatic, line she uses has a childlike quality which suits the subject of the first man and woman in their states of innocence.

Box reliefs
The box reliefs came about after making some small bronze Artist Medals for an exhibition at the Sladmore Gallery London.
Working on such a small scale, making the modelling clay pieces that the bronze was cast from was a refreshing experience. These became the art work itself and moulding, sanding and painting these small items and creating dioramas with inspiration from historic paintings to folk art has become a playful obsession.
