Pinhole + bike experiments

Recently I built a little rig for my pinhole camera so I could strap it to the handlebars of my bike. I then took some photos while cycling around London. Below are some of the results:

Sybil Andrews

I came across the work of Sybil Andrews (1898 - 1992) during a recent visit to the Tracey Emin exhibition at the Turner Contemporary in Margate when I picked up a card in the gift shop. I cannot believe I have been ignorant of her work for so long. Combining maybe my favourite movement in art, Modernism, with my favourite type of printing, linocuts, she produced breathtaking prints which have an intrinsic feeling of movement along with brilliantly simple cuts, shapes and colours.

Matt Calderwood

Artist Matt Calderwood is perhaps best known for his Erwin Wurm-style sculptures which sit precariously, suspended by their own tension between two walls but he has also produced some great geometric prints; or at least I think they are prints. I can't find any more information on them other than the pictures below but I am sure you will agree that they bear all the hallmarks of block prints. However they are done they are made up of pleasing shapes and even more pleasing black colour. If anyone has any more information on these please drop me an email to let me know more.
