Richenda Court

'Catch'

Richenda works as a printmaker specialising in etchings and linocuts. For the past five years she has created a body of work based around her graphic novel Ocean Swell which was published in 2016. In this exhibition etchings and linocuts, including prints from the Ocean Swell series, will be exhibited as well as delicate drawings which mark the starting point for her new work.

Trained in fine art and contemporary dance Richenda’s work is based around the figure, in gesture, poise and the occasional glance. Drawing is a great passion of hers and it is through this daily process that subconscious ideas are developed before being made into a print. Over the past few years Richenda’s prints have been exhibited at The Royal Society of British Artists at The Mall Galleries, Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2019 and LOOP Artists at Bankside Gallery.

Katharine Honey and

Sally Robson

Katharine Honey studied painting and stained glass at Wimbledon School of Art, later becoming interested in the making and designing of modern jewellery.   Working mostly in silver and using semi-precious stones the work emphasises colour and texture, sometimes within an abstract form.   Forging, reticulation and etching can be involved together with the interest in making pieces with fluid flexible movement. Two examples of her work are shown below.

Sally Robson shows a retrospective selection of work from when she left the Central School of Art to her current paintings. Sally’s first employment was working as a designer of book jackets and publicity for a London publisher. After marriage and two sons, she became interested in sculpture, working in clay from the figure and completed several commissions during this time. In the 1980s she joined the Greenwich Printmakers' Association producing etchings and linocuts, exhibiting widely with the group as well as independently, including at the Royal Academy. After twenty-one years with the GPA she wanted to concentrate on painting and has been working in oils and acrylic, some figurative, but more recently, abstract shapes and colour with gardens and landscapes in mind.

Angela Brookes

'The Light Fantastic' 

In ‘The Light Fantastic’, Angela will be showing her prints that explore and celebrate the infinite visual opportunities presented by the natural world.  Landscapes, seascapes and huge skies are favourite topics and she is fascinated by the ever changing effects of light at different times of the day, and as the seasons progress through the year.    “I depict what I see around me, and I draw on deep memories of my rural upbringing, but sometimes it is just a glimpse from a train window that provides inspiration.”

'Fragile Nature' 

Fragile Nature’ is a joint exhibition between printmakers Alexandra Robb and Amanda Taylor. Both artists use the natural world, its plants, trees, landscapes and wildlife, many of which are under threat from the behaviour of humankind, including the ravages of climate change as an enduring inspiration for their work.

This show includes Amanda’s reduction lino prints and collagraphs and Alexandra’s lino prints, drawings, paintings and print assemblages .Both artists will be showing a number of wood engravings, a shared passion that they feel can render the detail of natural forms in a way that no other medium can.

Alexandra worked for many years in the field of nature conservation also working as a wildlife illustrator. She now practices her art from home, still undertaking commissions as well as developing her own work.
