What animal would you be?

Animal art with character

Artist Kerry Eggleton creates vibrant and characterful anthropomorphic animals and screen prints them meticulously by hand. Anthropomorphism has ancient roots as a literary device in storytelling, and also in art. Most cultures have traditional fables with anthropomorphised animals, which can stand and talk like humans, as characters. Intrigued by these hybrid forms which resonate throughout history and across cultures; Kerry has created contemporary characters in the style of a Victorian engraving, harking back to the golden age of the British circus.

Collectively these form Mashka's Marvellous Menagerie.

The Creative Process

Highly Collectable Limited Edition Artwork.

Kerry starts out with a character in mind, so initially she styles and photographs a model in various stances appropriate to the personality, which start to bring it to life.

Kerry combines this digitally with the animal photograph and redraws it into separate colour layers, then manually develops each layer onto silkscreens using light sensitive emulsion and an exposure unit.

Each colour is mixed carefully by hand and hand-pulled through the individual screens, layer by layer, to recreate the images meticulously. Through this process Kerry transforms the initial precision of the digital image into a vibrant piece of art with wonderful ink density. As the prints are lovingly hand created, each is unique (although part of an edition), offering more charm and individuality than digitally created prints; making them more prized and collectable artworks as a result.
