Inked Animal is a project to create lasting impressions of dead animals. The process involves taking real dead animals and painting them with inks, paints and clays then pressing paper against them to create these images. The prints are often worked into to give more definition and detail.
I love how unsettling George Boorujy’s hyper-realistic depictions of animals are, painted in ink on paper they are stunningly beautiful, painstakingly detailed and of course uncomfortably confrontational.
Glen Ronald manipulates ink/paint with water to create spontaneous imagery, he then draws into the results once dry using pens to realise the faces of people or animals.
Italian-based Marco Mazzoni uses mainly coloured pencils for his pieces, these soft works have a dainty beauty to them which I really appreciate.
Steven Bindernagel uses inspiration from architecture, environmental textures and atmospheres to produce his beautiful abstract watercolour, acrylic and pencil Yupo paintings. He exlpains that the constant exploration through his mediums is what gives him the joy to keep making his artwork.
