Changing the image of cycling, picture by picture
For the last five years or more, the Copenhagen Cycle Chic movement has brought us stunning photographs of people on bikes doing everyday things
Here in Australia, cycling's image has traditionally gone in another direction with the bikes pictured in the media as mainly of the racing or leisure sort.
That's fine, but it's far from the whole story as our bike culture changes. It misses out on the burst of bikes as transport, such an important part of cycling from the POV of a better world and happier everyday lives.
So I've decided to add to the Cycle Chic phenomenon here by making bike art that's based, not on the machine itself or speed, but simply on the beauty of the body on the bike.
I hope some of my bike art ends up on your walls which, if it does, might help bring some of the cachet and status which art bestows, to this great way of living and moving
You'll find drawings in pencil and ink. Then , solar prints which are explained elsewhere. Then, Lino cuts, and finally, the most difficult to do, rubbings.
You'll also find films. : The Waltz of the Bikes and others.

Rubbings are made by rubbing away oil paint on special paper.
Lino cuts are made by carving lines in a special linoleum with a grooved knife and printing from the carved block you've created.
Solar prints are made by exposing drawings on acetate to special UV sensitive plates put out in the sun very briefly and then printing from those plates.
