London Original Print Fair 2019 – MONOPRINTS – Katherine Jones

25th – 28th April 2019

During the coming weeks I will be highlighting the artists and the monoprints we will be exhibiting at the London Original Print Fair in April 2019. For more information about the work of Katherine Jones or visiting the London Original Print Fair please contact the gallery  – email  

Rabley Gallery will be exhibiting new works focusing on monoprints. The quality of these prints brings a fresh vibe to the artworks and offers a more unique and experimental field of play for the collector and for the artist as they develop series of imagery. The monoprint, unlike the monotype, is one of a series, so it is not completely unique. Monoprints are often thought of as variations on one theme.


Monoprints and Collagraph & Block Prints

Katherine Jones ‘Cumulus’ Monoprints V-VIII, 2019 20.5 x 17cm

Small in scale, the monoprint series ‘Cloud Mass’ and ‘Cumulus’ surround the development of Katherine Jones’ larger more and familiar collagraph and block print prints. The monoprint is a series that thoughtfully develops ideas, colours, tonal complexities and surface in an experimental and free-form way. The energy and excitement of their making is palpable within the frame.

“The fundamental task of making a print is always spurred on by an attempt at innovation in some small way. I make drawings, watercolours and sketches, but as a printmaker I need more than simply an idea and consequent image. Without transferring beyond the initial proof an idea remains unexplored and unresolved” Katherine Jones (Article – Printmaking Today)

Following her residency with Rabley Drawing Centre 2017 -18 and the subsequent exhibition ‘The Precious Hours’, Jones consolidates these sentiments with in-depth investigations inspired by this experience and the resonance of cloud formations as metaphors for impermanence, fragility and constant change.

Tom Cartmill – New Print Edition for The London Original Print Fair

Tom Cartmill was winner of the SKETCH 2017, Rabley Print Edition Prize and we are delighted to present his new publication ‘A Fragment’ at the London Original Print fair. This work is the culmination of the project that has enabled him to translate his beautiful drawing into an intaglio print.

Tom Cartmill, A Fragment 2018, Intaglio, 46.5 x 57.5 cm, Edition of 25, £325

The ‘Fragment Series’, with clear connotations of remnants, remains, what has been left, references the fact that by its nature our memories, our understanding of people, places, concepts are far from complete. However much we toil in our understanding, or how adeptly we master skills, we do not achieve completeness. The nature of working as an artist is necessarily a searching, a piecing together, a process of discovery from uncertain territory. Notions that Cartmill finds ‘encapsulated in a fragment’. “I often have in mind TS Eliot’s ‘Four Quartets’ where in East Coker he dwells on the nature of creativity as an endless working towards recovering ‘what has been lost'”.
