A True Swansea Jack | Return Journey | Dylan Thomas | Screenprint

The medium dictated a continuous-line technique for the drawing which was made by dripping boiling tar on paper. I particularly liked the unpredictability of using the hot tar which changed its mark depending on the distance it was dripped and on its temperature

The deliberately incomplete white text to one side of my print, lists the names of some of the ‘...remembered invisible shops’ that were obliterated in the three-night blitz that afflicted Swansea in 1941. It was recorded that local Swansea people of that time were particularly shocked by the destruction of the Ben Evans' Store.
