ostara and her deer


ostara and her deer
pencil and marker on gessoed antique book covers
2012

this is a better picture of this drawing , I will be getting the other pieces back at the weekend from the westport arts festival and I will re-photograph them for my blog. I am looking forward to exhibitingthree drawings in The Dock Arts Centre at the crazy good Hunters Moon Festival in Carrick On Shannon next weekend . I will take some photos down there , I have an oppurtunity to sell some of my handmade artists books and zines too on the sunday , if anyone reading this is going to the festival :)

I am sorry that I will not make the launch of the new book Gods and Monsters of Tommorow this friday as its impossible to get up to Dublin and miss my beloved market on saturday , good luck to Emma and Elida and I know the book will fly.
I am so thrilled that my drawing is on the FRONT COVER !!!!!!

I am not surprised you love the book poetics of space , I used it when writing my thesis for art college

"Between Reality and the Imagination
(The innerworld outside) Poetic form in Visual Art,"

, it helped me argue my case for poetic space so well, thanks to gaston bachelard,oh and emmanuel levinas , wallace stevens the poet and michel foucault !
