SKETCHBOOK COLLAGE - “What Was It?”
Yet another work inspired by the reading on my current course - this time, Fitz-James O’Brien’s wonderfully inventive work, What Was It?, which has been one of my favourite horror stories since secondary school. Originally, I merely intended it to be the statue of the strange skull-faced man being unpacked from a clay mould, but as I added to it the piece…grew! Not sure where the bird-people came from. They need names…and so does the skull-face. I’ll think of something.
