Her screenprints have been shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts and they have been selected for touring shows to Ohio, Australia, LA, Denmark and Brussels.
Hetty Haxworth's much-admired abstract prints use shape, line and colour to explore spatial relationships. They often feel liberating and free, like a contemporary update on the abstract art of the 1960s. Haxworth has fulfilled commissions for John Lewis and the New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York and The Guardian describe her work as "delightful and original geometric prints based on organic forms".
The themes behind the work shown at the O3 Gallery this autumn include her Aqueous series that studies the fluid movement of shape and line over water and more recent abstract landscapes that document the shift of light over her local Scottish landscape. These two bodies of work play with themes relating to harmony and the fleetingness of time.
Daffodil fields, oilseed rape and terracotta earth provide Haxworth with ample inspiration, and framing this scene are man-made structures; the rigid lines of fences and cattle barns, turning the landscape into a geometric study
