Studio Printmakers' Collective

 

Prue Mac Dougall

Creating for me is a form of meditation, it blocks out the world. It helps me express my personal thoughts and feelings. Through art I can tell stories, create illusions and perform magic.

I work intuitively with my materials, and also from my imagination so that I am not limited by reality. I create situations and ideas that are fed back to me from magical little unreal animals (Chimera) that I have invented. 



These creatures are so close to their original form that they look realistic, and require a second glance to reveal the magic. Playing with the real and the unreal. Visual magic and magical realism.
