'Spirit of Place'
Printmakers Inc was formed in 2010 by a core of artists based primarily in North London connected by a network of artist-run printmaking galleries in South London (Southbank & Greenwich Printmakers), they gather together other individual printmakers to create exciting exhibitions, demonstrating printing methods, and hosting collaborative events. We, here at The Late November Gallery are thrilled to be hosting this exciting, diverse Printing Exhibition, bringing together over 20 printing artists....work by John Piper, Basil Beattie, Neil Canning and Ross Loveday will also be in the exhibition
The Private View will be opened by eminent artist Ross Loveday on Fri 6th July @6pm.
Aimee Birnbaum was born in New York City and now works at her
studios in London and Tuscany. She trained at the Museum School of Fine Arts in
Boston. She is an elected member of the Royal Institute of Painters in
Watercolour. She widely exhibits with MirabilisArtIn Croatia and in the U.K.
“My work centres on the natural world. I depict what I see around me, and draw on my deep memories of my rural upbringing. Sometimes it is just a glimpse from a train window that inspires my printmaking.
Landscapes and seascapes and huge skies are favourite topics and I enjoy depicting the ever changing effects of light and colour at different times of the day, and as the seasons roll through the year.
My favoured printing process is dry-point and mono print, using using two separate plates. I often employ carborundum which produces deep rich colour where the ink and paper become one. Here I keep my editions small, often only 5–10 prints. The mono print plate determines that each print is unique.
I also work with etching and aquatint, and with Intaglio gravure, sometimes working with imagined landscapes.
Anthony was born in London. He studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Goldsmith's College School of Art.
Since qualifying he has followed a career in museum and exhibition design and, until recently, worked as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator at a London University.
A developing interest in printmaking has led to further studies at the London Institute and Morley College. He now works as a printmaker from home and at the Thames Barrier Print Studio.
Anthony is an elected member of Greenwich Printmakers, a long established co-operative of printmakers, where his work is permanently displayed. He also participates in exhibitions in the UK and abroad.
Avril Macdonald was born in Scotland and studied woven and knitted textile design at the Scottish College of Textiles and De Montford University, Leicester.
Following textile design studies, she moved into journalism with DC Thomson in Dundee, then Radio Clyde in Glasgow and subsequently became Scotland's youngest female weekly newspaper editor.
Then, working for BT, and directing PR operations in Glasgow and London, she was responsible for the company's sponsorship of the arts in London and the South East, for which she received several awards. During this period she continued her lifelong interest in photography.
In 1998 she set up her own public relations and PR agency and was elected FRSA (Fellow of the Royal Society for Arts, Manufacture and Commerce).
In 2008 she studied drawing and painting, then printmaking, at the Institute Arts Centre, East Finchley.
She is a member of the Printmaker's Council, and East Finchley Open.
Barbara Jackson graduated from St Martin’s School of Art works in the disciplines of painting and printmaking. She has been awarded prizes in Printmaking and has succeeded in both group and one-man exhibitions. She finds etching endlessly fascinating in its technical and artistic challenges - using figures and cityscapes as a vehicle to capture light, movement and atmosphere.
All prints are etchings and aquatints and each print is individually inked and passed through the press by the artist. Barbara has exhibited in the Royal Academy’s annual Summer Exhibitions, has sold her work through various London galleries throughout her career and her prints are collected world-wide.
Julie Sullock was born in Clapham and still lives in South London.
She studied Fine Art at St. Martins School of Art from 1983 to 1986.
After this she completed an M.A. in printmaking at Brighton Polytechnic.
Julie’s abstract work is inspired by the landscape of Wales, Dorset, Southern France and the London skyline.
Her paintings concentrate on the use of colour and mood.
The composition of a painting is also important element in her work.
Some of her work reflects her interest in buildings, doorways and reflections of brake lights in the rain.
Julie has continued to make prints since leaving Art College; producing lithographs, silkscreens, collographs and most recently etchings.
Julie is a member of Southbank Printmakers which has a gallery in Gabriels wharf, where her work can be viewed.
She has exhibited widely in both UK and abroad
I am a painter printmaker inspired by the landscapes of Mid-Wales. I work in the British romantic tradition, following in the footsteps of Samuel Palmer and the later neoromantic artists of the 1940s. While some of my landscapes are from my imagination, many depict real places such as Aberystwyth where I did my degree in the late 80s, and Pentre'r Beirdd in Powys where I have lived and worked over the last 10 years.
The recurrent theme in my work is our relationship to nature whether in a realistic or surreal depiction of our internal or external worlds. Landscape for me is often a protective place, an escape or safe environment away from the demands of the modern world. I currently work from a studio in London next to the Thames Barrier, and find my creative mind works best in the separation from the places I am depicting.
Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, Lisa Scott studied at Syracuse University, The School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League in New York.
Since making London her home almost 20 years ago, she has studied at the Hampstead School of Art and the Royal Drawing School, channelling a lifelong love of drawing through the alchemy of metal, acid and ink of etching.
Her work has been shown at The Royal Academy Summer Show, with the Royal Society of British Artists, the Printmakers Council, the Rootstein Hopkins Foundation and Kingsgate Gallery.
In 2017, she held her first solo show in Kentish Town, London.
