Featured Artist - Vicky Oldfield
Vicky Oldfield's striking collagraphs are in our new show 'From Dark to Light'
Vicky's strong images are created using collagraphs, an experimental form of printmaking.
Vicky's strong images are created using collagraphs, an experimental form of printmaking. The prints are taken from plates which have been collaged with a variety of materials, card, fabric, paper, string, sand and anything else that may come to hand; it’s recycling at it’s most creative! The plates are then sealed and then inked up and printed in intaglio or relief on damp paper using an etching press. The embossed textural quality of the print is unique to this method.
Thanks to the process itself, she is able to make small editions of the image, the editions are variable due to the process and her desire to experiment, which means each print is unique.
Continually inspired by plants, objects and the animals that surround her, her pictures are an atmospheric response to the beauty and drama of her daily life.
We always have a selection of Vicky's collagrphs in our browsers but we will also have a collection of framed work on display until 25th June 2013. Vicky will be at our Meet the Artists Evening on Wednesday 22nd May from 7.30pm and will talk briefly about her work.
