On Wednesday February 3rd from 6:30-9pm we will have a viewing of recent works from Tiff Howick.
Tiff is an artist and printmaker based in East London
Influenced by childhood picture books and contemporary fashion illustration, Tiff is also interested in our tendency to see human behaviour and characteristics in animals. Having developed a loose, gestural style to create simple but striking images Tiff gives the subject of each piece an expressive face with a subtle hint of human emotion.
Tiff’s screenprints start as pencil drawings, using simple lines and a mixture of light and bold marks. The image is then redrawn in ink and a separate, painted layer of textured colour created. The drawings and painting are scanned and manipulated digitally to create the images needed to make stencils for printing. The final artworks are handprinted with two colours, black is printed over either a vibrant primary colour or a more subtle metallic ink.
This exhibition brings together Tiff’s collections of screenprints featuring British wildlife and popular dogs.
