An exhibition of etchings, fine art prints and unique paper art by 5 artists from Spike Print Studio

About

From the long established processes of etching and relief printing to ancient Japanese paper making, this exhibition combines the beautiful papers and prints of artists Martine Baldwin, Elaine Cooper, Christine Howes, Lee Kellgren and Heather Leeson and provides a rare opportunity to witness an exciting fusion of style, variety and techniques. The atmospheric Walcot Chapel provides the perfect foil for the artwork- the colour, textures and form in harmony with the ambience of the space — an exhibition that stimulates the senses and inspires the mind. ARTISTS' PROFILE Martine Baldwin — Martine's work explores her personal connection to the tidal landscape of the Severn Estuary - its expansiveness, hidden depths and changing moods. Her woodcuts are synonymous of landscapes reduced to essential lines and shapes by the action of wind and water. Elaine Cooper — tutored by Japanese Masters in the ancient craft of papermaking her exquisite handmade papers provide the perfect medium for her detailed fine art. Her creations have an extraordinary resonance, beauty and depth, and her paintings on multi-layered stained glass papers are totally unique. She was awarded an Ambassadors Commendation in 2002 for her contribution to Anglo-Japanese relations. Christine Howes — worked as an illustrator in London and Australia and wrote a series of books for children on Natural History. In Layer to Layer she features images of wildlife in its varied habitats using woodcut and linocut prints. Lee Kellgren — specialises in delicate and atmospheric original etchings. using a combination of hard and soft ground, aquatint, sugar-lift and photogravure techniques. Heather Leeson — uses silkscreen printing to build layers of colour, texture and pattern. The fragility of the environment is a theme of Heather's work.
