Master draughtsman Matt Coyle is well known for his skilful use of black pen on white paper. In 2014 Coyle has introduced a bold new element into his work; colour. With this turn his subjects take on a new charge, rich and seductive, yet still hauntingly sinister. In Warm Blooded Playthings, Coyle presents a new series of meticulous drawings that display his flirtation with tinting and shading, with hues and saturation. The result is a heightened sense of drama, where hyper-real and menacing subjects bestow upon the work a palpable tension.
