Thanks Leigh face for pinning the double fox faces by Amy Dover this morning, I went to go check out the rest of her work – she’s really good. Her drawings are detailed and delicately intricate and her subject matter is right up my alley, a little dark and out of the ordinary.
-Amy Dover is a UK based and internationally recognised artist and illustrator. In her intricate, and beautifully executed graphite drawings she explores primal and human desires, complex narratives, and traditional tales. Through dark characters, melancholy tones and the anthropomorphization of animals, Dover invites the view to enter a world which challenges traditional perceptions, and nature becomes the central focus. Her influences come from growing up in a small village in the North of England, playing in the woods and reading folk tales. As well as a love of Victorian paintings, Natural History books and Nature itself.
