Blood Reign, the return to York of Roman Emperor Constantine. Skeletons from the Roman Legion rise in front of York Minster, under the light of a pink moon, whilst crows fly overhead.
Did you know that Constantine I (later known as Constantine the Great) was proclaimed Roman Emperor in AD 306, in the city of York?
Gallery Resident Artist Mark Braithwaite says he needed something to entertain himself whilst working in the studio on his City Shadows project over the winter.... he chose to amuse himself by painting zombies. When he brought the paintings and prints into the gallery we rather enjoyed the results!
Following on from the success of his 'Zombie Apocalypse' series, Mark has expanded the range to create the 'From the Shadows' collection, of other supernatural beings and mystical happenings. York is the most haunted city in Europe after all, so he's not short of inspiration!
Mark tells us "This is the latest in my fun series of ghostly illustrations, 'From the Shadows' painted in watercolour and mixed media. In the sky I have used Schminke Horadam Supergranulation watercolours which made the unusual skies happen!"
