About the Item

Guy Allen Dachshund and Butterfly Etching Edition Size: 75 Year Completed: 2015 Image Size: H 40m x W 54 cm Approximate Size When Framed: H 69cm x W 87cm Sold Unframed (Please note that in situ images are purely an indication of how a piece may look). Dachshund and Butterfly is an original etching, engraved onto a copper plate, from which Guy Allen creates an impression of ink onto paper. To create his pieces, Guy Allen marries the traditional technique of etching with timeless subject matter and print making processes, for a more contemporary twist. Accomplished print maker Guy Allen (b.1987) grew up surrounded by Norfolk’s natural beauty. The theme of the animal world is central to Guy’s work and inspiration. His limited edition original etchings showcase his brilliant draftsmanship in a contemporary way. Guy graduated from Central Saint Martins School of Art in 2011, but discovered his passion for the traditional etching process while studying at the École Nationale Supérieure Des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 2010. In 2012 Guy trained as an assistant print maker at the highly respected Curwen Studios, Cambridge, under Mary Dalton and Stanley Jones, where he mastered other types of printmaking. Today Guy works as a full time artist, splitting his week between his London and Norfolk studios, accompanied by trusty wire haired dachshund, Loaf. To create his pieces, Guy marries the traditional technique of etching with timeless subject matter and print making processes, for a more contemporary twist. The stages involved in creating these original prints include etching, aquatint, screen print and lithography. Guy has adopted a unique approach to etching by using a stippling effect on the plate, a labour intensive pointillist technique which gives the images a detailed finish and highlights his skill in freeform drawing and etching. The horseracing world particularly inspires Guy – he delights in the technical skill required to capture horses’ musculature and movement. Most recently, one of Guy’s etchings, ‘Horse Study Blue’, was awarded runner up at the Society of Equestrian Artists Summer Exhibition at the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art in Newmarket. Guy's work was exhibited in the prestigious Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition in 2013 and 2014, and shortlisted in 2016.

Original Print, handmade and hand printed etching. An old friend of mine, Brodie the Scottish Terrier. He was a regular at the shows and a wonderful character. Animals have always been at the heart of my work. I find the form, movement and behaviour of the creatures I draw a source of limitless fascination. I love the idea of them watching me, watching them as I draw. I hope my appreciation of the sentience and character of the animals I draw comes across in my work. Over my career I have drawn everything from primates to penguins, dogs, ostriches and even an echidna. These days dogs are my main focus, mostly because I adore dogs but also because they are such an integral part of life. I am delighted by the theory that humans and dogs co evolved, we wouldn’t be what we are without them and vice versa. I try to pare my images down to a balanced simplicity that directs attention to the subject of the picture. I try to balance the subject and the space it occupies, giving each equal importance. Light is hugely important to my work, I imagine my subject in three dimensions as I draw and the light describes the musculature and texture that gives the drawing it’s presence and grounds it in the picture. I aim to capture a pause, a moment where whatever I draw looks like it could wander off or leap up any minute. My influences include Japanese prints, Chinese and Japanese brush drawing and the European artists who were influenced by Japan. I am really excited by composition, by artists like Bonnard and Leon Spilliaert...
