I work as an artist/printmaker from my Devon studio. I also love to travel and experience different landscapes, city scapes people and their lives and culture. The Prague series were made as a response to a month spent in this intreging city. I am interested in personal narratives and journeys. I walk, looking at parts of life that faccinate me and I want to make art out of it. My images usually start with a photograph or a sketch. These are added to and embelished digitally. The images are then taken to the printers and printed with specific colours and proportions. My current works are small with jewel-like colours. I want people to be transported into a situation with an imagined story when they look at my art, and feel they are seeing something distinctive and unique. I have exhibited my work in Devon and online.
Down in the valley near Great Torrington, there's a delapidated complex of buildings, reputed to be an old abandond dairy. There a constant source of fascination and inspired me to do a series of my jewel coloured Ikons. It is rumoured that the old dairy will soon be demolished in favour of a housing estate.
This demolished is now started. You can view my video on my youTube channel @SCrowthersVideos These 4 Ikons are now my tribute to the old dairy.
