“kane mclayKane McLay graduated in 2017 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee Scotland with a BA Hons in Fine Art. Taught under the renowned artist and playwright John Byrne, Kane was awarded the John Kinross Scholarship to Florence, Italy. Kane’s work is at its simplest, an intense study of the magnificent ‘machine’ that is the human body but look closer and the inky, awkward marks and jarring lines make it just possible to access the ‘animal’ that exists within all of us.

Details

Original monoprint on fine art paper. Please note this is an original artwork and one of a kind. It is unframed but we can arrange framing or mounting for you on request. Measurements approx: 42×29.5cm

Monoprinting is an exciting printmaking process whereby a spontaneous drawing is created by the artist using specialist printing inks directly onto a smooth surface such as perspex or glass. A variety of tools, brushes, found objects or even the finger is used to make the drawing using expressive marks. Damp fine art paper is then applied face down on top of the drawn image and pressed firmly or rollered onto the surface.The paper is carefully peeled back to reveal an impression of the original drawn image – this monoprint has a unique printed quality with unexpected marks and nuances and is not possible to recreate exactly as an original.
