I visited the annual exhibition of work from the Society of Wood Engravers at Bankside Gallery this week – if you are interested in printmaking you have till tomorrow to see this exhibition.

Here are my favourite three prints from the exhibition in no particular order – it’s always the birds that get my attention time and time again. Click on the images to be taken to the artists’ websites.


Julian Witts, ‘Black Grouse’, Black & White Woodcut.



Peter Brown, ‘The Stalker’, Linocut



Rosamund Fowler, ‘Cherry Blossom’, Wood Engraving

Last weekend for Art Hub Print Open: 23 & 24 July 2016

Last weekend for the Art Hub Print Open exhibition at Art Hub Gallery in Deptford.

The gallery is a 15min walk from Greenwich Market, I recommend doing both! Have a look on this map

Ever wondered what I look like? Well here I am on the private view night with my two colourful Alhambra linocuts.



And One I Missed; Gert & Uwe Tobias Exhibition

Sometimes too much choice can be a bad thing; it can paralyze you and then the opportunity is missed. Living in London I am so lucky with the variety of art exhibitions available at any given time; so many. I make a mental note to go to this one and that one and oh, don’t forget that other one; and before I know it they have closed. Ah thankfully there is the worldwide web, I can experience partially what I have missed. One that got away was Gert & Uwe Tobias at The Whitechapel Gallery.

My particular interest is in their collaborative woodcuts and collage pieces; often on quite a large scale for a woodcut. Their image making is vibrant, bold, thought-provoking, and sometimes refuses to be pinned-down. They flow though figurative to abstract in one piece, yet the image as a whole retains a strong identity.

Below an interveiw introducing the exhibition of Gert and Uwe Tobias; and some of my favourites from their work.
