Redback Spider Tattooed Woman

Pictured above and below: selected progress views of Redback Spider Tattooed Woman (2020, pencil, pigmented drawing ink and gouache on Khadi paper).

Even as work on the drawing continuedaided by a well-thumbed reference book and a plastic spider, downstairs in our back garden the real thing, spotted by Shane Jones, scurried into the undergrowth.

Redback Spider Tattooed Woman was the last drawing completed for Backstories, my solo show at  Stephen McLaughlan Gallery, Melbourne, running from 15 April - 2 May. (See also previous post).
