Drawing by Dina Mackins made from gunpowder, homemade ink, charcoals and ash on paper, 2015. During her postgraduate study at DJCAD, Dina developed the technique of creating drawings with ink combined with explosive materials which were ignited in controlled conditions to create the finished artworks. This and many other amazing works are currently on show in the Lamb Gallery in A Legacy of Art & Design in Dundee
