The story of the prints

In Spring 2016 Rabley Drawing Centre welcomed Jane Harris for her first solo exhibition in the gallery. Her response was ‘Separate Arrangements’, a collection of new works on paper. This series of drawings included elliptical pools of intense watercolour with the burnished black of graphite.

The convergence colour and graphic mediums encouraged Jane to seize the opportunity to work in the print studio at Rabley and we are delighted to launch two stunning new publications –

A glimpse of what lies beneath

‘Gleamers’ are multi-plate woodcuts blocks, lazer cut from the artists drawings. They embrace her painterly concerns using metallic tinted inks; the edge of the shapes pressed to intent the surface of the image; close tonal ranges and contrast playing the with light to create oscillating space. Each printed diptych is composed of related drawings with the woodcuts.

About JANE HARRIS

In Jane Harris’ drawing and painting the motif floats and reflects as the sheen of the marks work in balance to the surface. Detailed adjustments made to the proportions, the edging and the relative positioning of the shapes, gives an unexpected individuality, visual rhythm and sensual playfulness.
