We’re pleased to announce our Summer Printmakers Show for 2024. We will be showing new works by Anna Marrow, Vicky Oldfield, Zelga Simone Miller, Lindsey Moran, Clare Halifax, Jonathan Lawes & Angus Vasilli.

About

Anna Marrow makes surprising, sometimes humorous images by combining mundane objects and environments with vivacious colour and retro buildings. Pin-pointing a specific moment in time, she finds herself drawn to objects from her childhood such as 70s televisions, radios and cars in urban and suburban landscapes, often revisiting the theme of the pool, swimming and lidos.

Vicky Oldfield sees beauty in everyday objects, such as pot-plants, books and bottles that are often filled to the brim with seasonal flowers. She uses the collagraph printmaking technique through which she is able to be very expressive combining pattern, colour, collage and found bottle labels creating a vintage look and feel to her work. Vicky will also be exhibiting some of her original paintings.

Zelga Simone Miller work often begins with a figure from memory or a photograph. Each composition is poised, there is a sense of balance and reflection, a moment before or perhaps after an event. The softness of Zelga’s colour palette along with the grain of her woodcuts gives each piece a dreamlike impression.

Lindsey Moran specialises in exploring the relationship between printmaking and photography. Carrying her camera everywhere she goes, she is drawn to exploring the influence of light on both natural and man-made environments, with her black and white photographs forming the basis of her photogravure prints.

Clare Halifax’s printmaking contrasts extraordinary detail with wide open space and scale combined with abstract pattern. She is an observer of urban environments that teem with buildings, life, and activity, often taking in large vistas or aerial views. Coming from a background of textile design, you’ll often find the print of a fabric illustrating certain details of her prints.

Jonathan Lawes has a distinct love for geometry and pattern. He creates his abstracted compositions through layering shapes of different colours, opaque and transparent, allowing them to form organically. Jonathan’s approach reflects his enthusiasm for the evolution that takes place in the printmaking process.

Angus Vasili’s layered landscapes come from his fascination of the contrast between natural and manmade environments. He incorporates polarised borders to hone in on his subjects of abstracted distant mountains and exuberant skylines. Relying on the printmaking process, Angus allows chance to inform his final composition.

The Summer Printmaker’s Exhibition 2024 will run from Saturday 13th July, join us for Pimms & soft refreshments for the opening from 12pm.
