Tiger Tiger Burning Bright: David Koster's Tigers

Koster Tiger Koster Tiger

Limited edition Tiger woodcuts by David Koster

The Tiger
William Blake

Tiger Tiger. burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye.
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat.
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp.
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears
And watered heaven with their tears:
Did he smile His work to see?
Did he who made the lamb make thee?

Tiger Tiger burning bright,
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

New work from Hemlata Pradhan

We have just uploaded 6 new pieces from Hemlata Pradhan, which featured in her exhibition at the British Museum’s Indian themed exhibitions last Summer. A couple of the new paintings are shown below. Visit her collection to view the new works as well as her other pieces and note that a few are available as either watercolours or as prints.

In other news, we were delighted to see that Hemlata’s work featured in the national press toward the end of last year, with Kate Weinberg of the Daily Telegraph contrasting her endeavours with the brush to the difficulties of growing orchids. Well done Hemlata!
