Using only graphite pencil, Amy Dover has attracted attention to her work throughout Great Britain. Her art has been widely exhibited and has inspired thoughtful and introspective articles in the media there.
She focuses on animals, often depicting the dark side of their enduring battle against man and civilization. While many of the articles written about her art explore this aspect, what strikes me in this drawing—and in many of her others—is how she integrates faithful renditions of her animals into completely separate compositions of unusual shapes.
Amy Dover’s studio is in Newcastle upon Tyne. See more artwork on her website.
