RABLEY GALLERY AT THE LONDON ORIGINAL PRINT FAIR 2019
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 email@example.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.

Katherine Jones ‘Cumulus’ Monoprints V-VIII, 2019 20.5 x 17cm
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 →
Neil Bousfield ‘With Whom Their Love is Done (Spring Offensive)’ 2018, Engraving, 53 x 36.5 cm, Edition 40
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.

The Precious Hours 2017, Collagraph and block print on paper, 92 x 71 cm, Edition of 25
The Precious Hours is an exhibition of new prints and works on paper by Katherine Jones, Rabley’s artist-in-residence 2016-17 and runs from 17 March – 28 April 2018 at Rabley Gallery, Wiltshire.
During her residency Katherine Jones travelled down to Rabley Home Farm from her home in London on a monthly basis. Katherine was able to witness the seasonal changes on the farm as well as more formal changes such as the sale of the dairy herd, which marked a fundamental shift for the farm. She has not attempted to document these changes straightforwardly, rather, the relative space and minimalism of the cultivated landscape in contrast to the squeeze of the urban environment; the differences in scale; the bittersweet nature of farming and our larger changing environment have been the catalyst to the new work.
