In an early summer exhibition Vicky will be showing a selection of her colourful collographs, each of which is finished individually by hand, using watercolour, and collage.

About

Printmaker 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 collograph 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.

Collograph is an experimental form of printmaking with the plates created using collage, rather than engraved metals. Paper, card, string or just about anything with interesting texture is applied to the plate and sealed, before the artist applying the ink, and running it through the press.  The paper is embossed by the plate, which is unique to this method.  

Thanks to this method and Vicky’s desire to experiment, her editions are very small, with many elements and colours applied by hand, making each print unique.

Vicky Oldfield studied Design at Staffordshire University, before post-graduate study at Richmond School of Art in Advance Printmaking. She worked has exhibited all around the UK, including at the Mall Galleries and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
