Tarpey Gallery is excited to announce an exhibition of new work by East Midlands based fine art printmaker Laine Tomkinson. Laine’s practice has developed over thirty years, experimenting with all aspects of printmaking and painting, now specialising in silkscreen and intaglio processes.
The exhibition will showcase a range of beautiful and effervescent screen prints. The works are inspired in part by the coming of spring. Much of the work shows natural forms, flowers or organic shapes, tumbling, moving, dancing – almost bursting out of the frame with celebration at the seasonal changes.
In mid-2011 Laine was elected as a member of the Printmaking Council, which showcases contemporary British printmaking nationally and worldwide.
In recent times she has shown prints in over twelve countrywide exhibitions, including the national touring Printmakers Council 8TH Annual Exhibition and Contemporary Printmaking Now at Dorchester Abbey featuring works by selected current printmakers, Brighton Art Fair, London Print studio and Printfest. Her work has also been selected for the Northern Print Biannual in Newcastle in 2014.
“Laine’s printmaking practice deserves wider acclaim. Her painterly approach and unerring sense of colour produce prints that are both dynamic and beautiful. She is becoming hot property in printmaking circles- a true printmaker’s printmaker”
Lucy Philips, Director, Leicester Print Workshop
