Fishink Artwork at the Platform Gallery, Clitheroe

September 17, 2013

Fishink Lion

I’ve been invited to exhibit some illustration work, for show in the Winter Crafts Exhibition at the Platform Gallery in Clitheroe. This will run from October 12th until early Jan 2014. I felt rather honoured because they only invite 100 makers from the whole of the UK and my work was selected from the hundreds of entries submitted. This years theme is loosely based around childhood and child-centered imagery and is called ” Winter In The Valley “.  It should be an amazing exhibition and you can find out how to locate the gallery, opening times, etc here. Some of the images below may well be amongst the selected pieces on show, so you’re getting a sneak preview : )

My current work available for sale can be found here on Pinterest.  Let’s start with a few birds in a spiral flight.

These dogs seem to be enjoying their exercise routine and showing off their balancing skills.

Dogs playing fetch in the park and a less energetic pup finding a rather psychedelic colourful meadow for an afternoon snooze.

I created a couple of pattern repeats from the work whilst I was assembling the illustrations. Grass and jungle leaves. I liked the softer background imagery used to suggest depth and density.

This crocodile appears to be friendly, but you never can tell and the last one is a little more serene !

Here’s a quick interior of the gallery I took when I dropped the artwork off, looks like a lovely space.

    I like the ‘Birds in flight’. It reminds me of a pigeon flock doing their fast, circular flight.

      Thanks Wallace. Yes trying to put a little movement into the work sometime too. The pigeon flock is a good comparison.
