El Greco Studies

Work is currently progressing on completing a set of Apostles, after El Greco.

Inspired by a trip to his house in Toledo, and a wish to experiment with clear shellac and pigment these works are different. The ‘studies’ are heads with symbols in the background from my research into the Apostles. They are finished with my usual shellac and prints taken from the plates.

The larger ‘transcriptions’ of El Grecos’ Toledo series incorporate pigment into clear shellac. With an aim to show the works in a religious art exhibition in June. More details later when available and if you would like an invite do get in touch.
