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 Hammick – Island Life

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


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

100 Years On – New Prints to Commemorate Wilfred Owen, WWI Poet and Soldier by Neil Bousfield

Neil Bousfield ‘With Whom Their Love is Done (Spring Offensive)’ 2018, Engraving, 53 x 36.5 cm, Edition 40


Wilfred Owen

It is exactly one hundred years on Sunday 4th November 1918, since the war poet and soldier Wilfred Owen was killed by machine gun fire while leading his men across the Sambre-Oise, just one week before the signing of the armistice marking the end of The Great War.

To commemorate, we are launching a specially commissioned portfolio of limited edition engravings by Neil Bousfield. Neil was commissioned by the Folio Society to make a body of work to accompany a new publication of Wilfred Owen’s poetry, published to mark the centenary of Owen’s death and of Armistice Day.

Possibilities and Boundaries – A Review of Nicholas Lees, ‘Penumbra’ and Jeff Powell, ‘Edge’ by Wendy Rhodes


Rabley Contemporary is hosting a serene and tranquil show of drawing and ceramics by Nicholas Lees and Jeff Powell. The first few minutes spent with the finely crafted works provides the visitor with impressions of shifting light and ephemeral glimpses of forms, redolent of fleeting recollections. Take a little more time and each piece reveals itself as a complex engagement with materials exploiting the possibilities and boundaries of the hand-made. Lees has produced a series of porcelain vessels which defy concepts of solidity Continue reading
