Collection: Apples Kabuki Suite by Pat Douthwaite

Pat Douthwaite came to work on the "Apples Kabuki" suite of lithographs during 1988. These very graphic prints influenced by traditional Japanese theatre hark back to Douthwaite's own dance training and the works capture the state of exaggerated costume and extreme theatre.

The suite travels from very calm, beautiful portraits of kimono-clad women playing tennis to powerful, quite gruesome images of skulls and scarred victims, all resplendent in patterned finery and accompanied by birds and small cat-like animals.

Recognised as the most complex of processes, the lithographs were made by the artist drawing directly onto a stone with a greasy crayon and wash.
