Grazing Horse Study Gold 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. This etching is a study piece for the large Grazing Horse artwork that you will see in Guy’s portfolio. 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. Born in 1987 in Norfolk, United Kingdom. Today, Guy is a successful international artist, having been exhibited in Dubai, New York, and London and has his work in private collection including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Singapore and Hong Kong. Guy discovered his passion for print making during his time in Paris studying at the École Nationale Supérieure Des Beaux-Arts in 2010, when he became particularly fascinated with the traditional etching process. Following his graduation from Central Saint Martins School of Art in 2011, Guy moved back to Norfolk for 18 months, from where he still finds his inspiration before returning to London. In 2012 Guy trained as an assistant print maker under Mary Dalton and Stanley Jones at Curwen Studios, Cambridge; where he had to learn at a fast clip how to master other types of print making. In 2013 and 2014 Guy had one of his etchings selected to be exhibited in the prestigious Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London. Guy is represented by a number of galleries in the UK and is working as a full time artist in London, he spends the majority of his time in his studio in Peckham or when he is printing at Artichoke Printmaking Studios. After a successful first solo exhibition in London, Guy had a inspiring response from his horse studies, this year Guy is focusing on the horse as a subject matter. The inspiration behind Guy 2014 entry to The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition ‘The Winner’ Guy explains: ‘The Winner’, depicts my most recent exploration into animal subjects. The title alludes to the multi-million pound horse-racing industry that is prevalent in East Anglia, where I grew up. The horse is one of the oldest depicted animal forms: its musculature and contours have long intrigued artists, who have rendered this subject matter in almost every medium possible. Here, I have brought together a traditional technique – etching – and a timeless subject matter, twinned with a contemporary twist. The diving board not only physically grounds the animal, it also represents the precarious nature of the racing world.
