About

North House Gallery is pleased to present this show of prints, very various in terms of medium and size. The printmakers will be familiar to followers of the gallery but the ceramicist Claire Halsey is new.

Kate Boxer is known for her portraits of random figures that take her fancy: here we have Sergei Diaghilev, Patsy Cline and Diana Dors. Her portraits of animals capture the qualities of particular creatures with an affectionate humour which makes them appealing to a wider audience than simply their owners.

Jason Hicklin has made a series of etchings of London walking back and forth between Hammersmith Bridge and Greenwich Observatory.  The city skyline has changed hugely since the etchings of London bridges he made thirty years ago for his postgraduate diploma show.

Neil Bousfield walks and draws every day along the fragile coast of Norfolk between Happisburgh and Walcott and then in the studio produces original engravings of remarkable complexity and emotional resonance. His latest, more abstract, engravings are elegaic reminders of the loss of the boundary between land and sea.

Mitsushige Nishiwaki is a Japanese printmaker who often visits New York, London and Paris and produces quirky coloured etchings of iconic shops, buildings, indeed anything that catches his outsider’s eye. His designs have been taken up by fashion houses and interior designers.

Claire Halsey is a painter who has recently turned to ceramics. Her shapely domestic ware is thrown thentextured, using sculpting techniques, to create a distressed, tactile feel, and glazed in soft, natural colours.
