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.
