Description

I was inspired to create this artwork titled ‘Steve the Squirrel’ after spending far too much time watching our neighbourhood squirrel (who, to my mind, is known as Steve) bouncing up and down my garden fence. One of our neighbours feeds him and his friends daily and I regularly find huge walnuts and other nuts planted in my plant pots and see Steve dangling upside down from my bird table like some sort of furry ninja. I wanted to showcase the beauty of a squirrel (despite their somewhat destructive nature) and capture their uniqueness in a way that would make people smile.

To create this artwork, I precisely cut, ripped and manipulated different types of paper (mostly wallpaper) and layered it up piece by piece to make each strand of fur and each tiny whisker. By cutting the fur in this way, it adds the softness and depth – creating a tactile piece that invites you to touch it. ‘Steve the Squirrel’ is stood ready for action in his typical pose with an alert expression looking out for the dangers from the neighbourhood cats (or maybe wondering where he left those nuts). I chose to keep the background as a more muted pallet of pale grey featuring the suggestion of trees around him which adds a contrast to the vibrant coloured and detailed body of the squirrel.
