About the Drawing
These drawings in ink on paper were produced as a second response (the first was many years earlier in 1980 in pencil and gouache), now with Bernard Mitchell, to a translation by Malcolm Parr of Marcel Schwob’s version of The Children’s Crusade. These drawings formed the starting point for prompting the Old Stile Press to produce, in collaboration with the artist and writer, a publication of the story with original woodcuts called White Voices, 2001.
About the Artist
Keith Bayliss’ work is figurative and expressive – his motif, the human figure situated within the landscape. He works in a variety of mediums: pencil and ink on paper, oil on canvas, relief printing and more recently, small mixed media sculptural constructions. His large scale works present life size figures often inhabiting undefined or unrecognisable places. His protagonists frequently interact, sometimes moving in opposite directions with a bird or animal as companion in this private, intimate, interplay within timeless space
Keith Bayliss is based in Swansea
