EXHIBITION: Sue Schreiber - The Sentinels


"Birds of prey have such an intense focus as they observe the world around them – never faltering – always observing intensely.
I work in many mediums yet decided that scratchboard would be the ideal medium to depict this small series of bird portrait pieces in my latest work. Scratchboard has a smooth, absorbent kaolin clay ground that is evenly coated with India ink. A very sharp knife, or anything that makes a mark, can be used with controlled, crisp, clean lines to create exquisitely detailed artwork. As such it lends itself beautifully to the textures of feathers and fur."
