It’s Drink & Draw time with our friends at Broken Frontier! This coming month we have special guests Iris Erlings, Alexandra Cook, Aneurin Wright, and Kay Wilson! The event will be Wednesday, March 27th.
Iris Erlings is a student and London-based photographer originally from Reykjavik. Iris Erlings has created MYND, a Risoprinted zine that depicts works by the illustrator’s favourite modernist sculptors including Jean Arp, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore. MYND is the first physical thing Iris has created having studied photography at LCC then realising a couple of years ago that illustration and drawing suited her better. All of the works in MYND are representations of the female body, sometimes headless and occasionally abstracted.
