Shedding Velvet by Gil Dickinson

Shedding Velvet is a love letter to the patterns and textures of the natural world. The high contrast of single color block printing allows me to imply harsh light while limiting the ways in which I am able to convey the presence of different materials in a composition. The struggles and triumphs of working this way lend themselves well to gritty visuals. With this body of work, I depict intimate, uncanny, and dramatic scenes focusing on the wildlife and landscapes of the American West.
