Emma Stibbon – Territories of Print 1994-2019 – Exhibition at Rabley Drawing Centre

Celebrating twenty-five years of Royal Academician Emma Stibbon’s magnificent prints her exhibition at Rabley Drawing Centre continues until 21 December.

“Stibbon …draws from the printmaker’s prosaic materials images which are marvellous and compelling, images which expand our imagination and leave us awe-struck”  Gill Saunders, Senior Curator (Prints), V&A Museum 

A beautiful fully illustrated book ‘Emma Stibbon, Territories of Print 1994-2019’ is also available to accompany the exhibition (£30) available from via our website Rabley Publications , in the gallery or at the Royal Academy of Arts shop.

Emma Stibbon is ‘artist as witness’ to our landscape and environment on the cusp of change: polar regions; volcanoes; deserts; coastal and urban. Through the alchemy of printmaking Stibbon envelops us in her experiences with monumental woodcuts and tactile intaglio prints, where volcanic ash is embedded into the printing plate. There is a seriousness that underpins this endeavour; a combination of craft and emotion that is questioning, raw and unflinching.

The Jodrell Bank ObservatoryIt has been at the forefront of astronomical research since its inception in 1945 and tracked US and Russian craft during the space race. The Lovell Telescope, which was the world’s largest telescope when it was completed in 1957. The site in Cheshire is part of the University of Manchester. It is dominated by the landmark Lovell Telescope.

Chamberlain is interested in the use of a traditional Print process such as etching being used to record subject matter that is generally at the cutting edge of technology for its time. The etchings become an extension of his drawing, allowing him to record the location through the interlinking processes of drawing and printmaking.

Public Collections include

Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Modern, Ashmolean, Oxford, UK, Royal West of England Academy, Bristol UK

Ian Chamberlain’s work reinterprets man-made structures as monuments placed within the landscape, acting as architectural metaphors of past and current technological achievements. He has had a long-standing fascination with technology and architectural forms especially the structures within industry, agriculture, science and the military. These have included Goonhilly Earth station, The Lovell Telescope, Cheshire Maunsell Sea Forts in the Thames estuary and the Acoustic Sound Mirrors on the south Kent coast.

Ian Chamberlain’ work including the ’Tramission Series is available through Rabley Gallery and is included in our ‘Salon Academie’

Forthcoming Solo Exhibition at Rabley Gallery 2020

London Original Print Fair 2019 – MONOPRINTS – Katherine Jones

http://www.rableydrawingcentre.com

RABLEY GALLERY AT THE LONDON ORIGINAL PRINT FAIR 2019
25th – 28th April 2019
STAND 34

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 info@rableygallery.com  

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.

Tom Hammick – Island Life

Tom Hammick ‘Henry’s Cabin, Walden Pond’ 2018, Edition variable reduction woodcut,121 x 155 cm

TOM HAMMICK ‘ISLAND LIFE’

Exhibition at Rabley Gallery / 17 Nov 17 – 22 Dec 2018

In Tom Hammick’s upcoming exhibition Island Life, images of Henry’s Cabin and the walled utopian garden of Sky Island glow under the same moon as his new woodcut prints inspired by Benjamin Britten’s Sea Interludes. His surreal landscapes evoke feelings of solitude alongside a deep interconnectivity where consciousness looms just over the dream horizon. Hammick’s images are often metaphors for the human condition; reflecting states of mind, transience, fragility and awe. Continue reading
