Here Be Dragons

PREVIEW 21 SEPTEMBER 6:30 - 9:30pm

Exposed to Frank Brangwyn's Empire Panels during school speech days, Rose Davies has always worked with models in the Brangwyn tradition and started to draw Dave about 10 years ago when he was a young student in the Territorial Army and through this developed a large body of work about "The Warrior".

‘As I have watched him develop from a young lad into a fully-fledged warrior, this process has challenged my personal, political and artistic preconceptions’.

During her role as the Now the Hero artist in residence at elysium studios (Sept 10 – Oct 13), the artist will develop the theme of "The Warrior" to another level by working with an older female model and retired soldier, working on a massive scale and constructing a studio installation which will then transfer to Volcano for a week, giving the public the chance to see her in a real-life work setting, where she will also give a talk on the gestation and development of The Warrior.
