I met up with my old pal Artist Iain Connell this afternoon and had a good blether about his relatively new venture. Iain is sharing his wealth of knowledge of all things artistic through workshops aimed at all ages and levels of ability. So if you are in Glasgow and fancy getting arty why not check out the WEBSITE HERE and pay him a visit.
I have finally gotten rid of the cast/splint thing from my wrist and hand and will be fully operational from now on. Even though it was my left hand it still made everything pretty tricky. Working has been a minefield of new potential disasters and injuries.
Anyhoo, watch this space as I wade with 7 working fingers (and two mighty thumbs) into the backlog of work I have before me.
These two little feathery fellas will be on display at Union Gallery Edinburgh from Friday 7th Feb as part of their birdy themed show In the Company of Birds. Here's a LINK
"Dylan Lisle’s work maintains a contemporary dynamism through his old masterly representations of the female form. Knots and swathes of vibrant, passionate fabric envelope his sensuous figures, or otherwise are the subject of larger studies, which draw upon chiaroscuro, reminiscent of Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Vermeer and Rubens. His work is instantly approachable, engagingly serene and romantically charged; traits that have not gone unnoticed in the art world he inhabits.
Fresh from his first London solo exhibition, Dylan Lisle spearheads a modern movement of artists, whose desire it is to capture light in all its glorious subtleties, texture in its infinite tactile qualities and the female form in its evasive beauty." Hope Robertson, 2007
