Artist's Description

*A classic artwork
Has been redone
With added quirk
To which it’s spun

Concept from old
Fresh to construe
The work unfolds
These hands anew

From master’s past
To artist now
But not surpassed
Escher’s endow

Inspired work
From which this grew
Visions that lurk
In mind of Drew*

This digital painting is a tribute to one of my favorite artists, M.C.Escher. It was inspired by both, his 1948 work titled ‘Drawing Hands’, and other Escher artworks based around the infamous ‘Moebius strip’. I can fondly remember sitting in absolute fascination for hours as a very young child, absorbing the artworks from my parents books on Escher.

My artwork attempts to combine three differnet elements. The first from Escher’s ‘Drawing Hands’, second from the Moebuis strip, and third from the international symbol for recycling which is also a design based on the ‘Moebius strip’.You can view these three elements I incorporated into my artwork at the links that I have provided below.

This artwork was created in Photoshop from a photo I took of my wife’s hand. I hope you will enjoy my new ‘spin’ to this old Escher classic .
