Munch in Edinburgh

I’m really looking forward to this! One of my favourite artists of all time, Edvard Munch, is having an exhibition dedicated to his prints at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, opening on Saturday. I’m dying to go, it looks wonderful. There are some rarely woodcut printed pieces, around 50 works on paper, most featuring his recurring themes of mortality, darkness, the female form and harrowing self portraits. I will definitely be heading along to see this when its on, if you are in Edinburgh I hope you do too.
You can read more about the exhibition here
And see more of his work here

Second Storey Sunlight

This is something I did recently. You may have noticed from previous posts that I really admire the work of Edward Hopper. This is a work in progress, but I thought I would share it nonetheless. And I will keep you posted with how it progresses!

Here is the original:

And a play on the torch inspired by it…

They need some refining, but I’m happy with where it is going!
