Please note the price is for the unframed original etching .
Grazing Horse 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.
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 etching for the Grazing Horse series is by far the most ambitious piece that I have embarked on, once framed measuring 105cm x 78cm so quite a statement piece.
Grazing Horse was inspired by many trips to see Nic Fiddian Greens sculpture sitting so magnificently in Marble Arch, London. As well as on the landscape off the A3 when leaving London I always return to the studio thinking I really do love that piece, and alway thinking, an etching with a similar profile could work well.
