The Glare, 2021
fineliner pen, ink, watercolours
35 x 20cm
I have been working at bringing out the emotion that is hiding beneath the surface, by telling stories with fine lines and the flow they take within the figure, to point out the complexities of the human mind and body in pictorial images.
Jacob Bayne describes himself as an emerging artist, working primarily in watercolours, inks and pen. His work is fueled by a fascination for the human form and the subconscious information we pick up through body language. Jacob has spent the past few years studying the human form in order to create honest yet abstract depictions of what is commonly recognizable. With a mix of ink, fine liner pen and watercolors, images emerge and seep through layers on the paper leaving behind shadows and traces of emotionally charged forms. 'I explore the emotion of human movement, shadows and shape. Inviting the viewer to feel what is beneath the surface'.
