Sleeping badgers shows four European badgers (Meles meles) curled up together underground. During a spell of bitterly cold weather, as I lay in my own warm bed, I imagined the badgers nesting together warm and dry in their sett, safe beneath the roots of a tree as snow falls.
This painting is a limited edition of 8 drypoint prints (7 plus and artist’s proof). Each is printed by hand using a ‘plate’ I make myself from soft polypropylene. I draw and scratch into it with an etching needle to create incised marks. I ink up this plate, place a piece of damp heavy duty paper on top, run it through the press – and hey presto! – you get a hand made print! After the ink has dried, I tint each image with watercolour so that each one is a slightly different and absolutely unique original piece.
This painting celebrates the incredible work of my hero, the scandalously unsung Alfred Russel Wallace. Wallace came up with the theory of natural selection independently of Darwin and established the study of biogeography.
This painting is no longer available, and is shown here for your viewing pleasure and for the glory of Wallace.
