DENISE WYLLIE Attends National Original Print Exhibition
Denise Wyllie’s ‘Cuthbert All Souls’ screenprint was amongst the selected works exhibited at the National Original Print Exhibition 18-29 September 2019, which is now in its 6th year. A judging panel from the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers selected 227 prints from the thousands of submissions and sought a mix of emerging talent and established professionals.
She attended the September 17th private view at the Bankside Gallery in the company of the model for her work, Cuthbert Assan.
Denise comments: “This screenprint is fairly monchrome. The colour of the paper is quite creamy. I wanted him to jump out of the picture so I used a shocking white on his face and bold, dark lines and strong brush marks which are influenced by Japanese art. The whiteness of his face is reminiscent of Geisha make up.”
