The Erl King

  • For my graduation project at Camberwell University of the Arts I decided to make a series of work inspired by Angela Carter's The Erl King. I tried several new techniques for this series, working in both black and white and colour. This project was mainly aimed at getting comfortable with drawing scenery and taking a break from drawing full on portraits. The final images are printed large scale and are currently on display at Camberwell University of the Arts till the 23rd of July 2014. 
  • ''The trees stir with noises of women who have lost themselves'
  • 'Only the sweetest singers he will keep'
  • 'You can keep me in one of your cages and mock my loss of liberty'
  • 'The Erl King will do you grievous harm'
  • 'Mother, mother, you have murdered me!'
