'The Horse and The Wolf Cub - After Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone', 2009 'Tales from the East' Series 2009 Red and Black Biro Drawing 42cm x 30cm

Paying homage Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone, fairy tale illustrators, the drawing features Jane's muse Lily aged 14 weeks on the horse's back while watching a Russian animation layered through the saddle. An interpretation of 20th century mass produced prints, inspired by a visit to the home of a Transylvanian miller. The 80 year old Miller lived in one room. A 1960's tapestry of Sleeping Beauty hung on the wall above her bed.
This drawing symbolises the human need for collecting and displaying objects. Objects left behind during conflict or disaster become part of a circumstantial public exhibition of the abandoned, where individual styles and tastes are displayed and discovered.
