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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
ARTIST in FOCUS
CLOUD AND CUMULUS SERIES
Monoprints and Collagraph & Block Prints
Katherine Jones ‘Cumulus’ Monoprints V-VIII, 2019 20.5 x 17cm
We have three wonderful new woodcut prints from Sadie Tierney available at this year’s London Original Print Fair at The Royal Academy of Arts. In Sadie Tierney’s new woodcuts and watercolours the anticipated excitement of the voyage radiates from the gloaming as ships head out of port reflecting on the sea.

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'”.
We are launching a beautiful new Rebecca Salter Japanese woodblock print at the London Original Print Fair. ‘Leste’ is printed on Torinoko paper using 12 blocks and 38 printings, printed with the Sato workshop in Japan.

Rebecca Salter commissioned the famous Sato Woodblock Workshop in Kyoto to produce print editions, She is also an expert in Japanese woodblock printmaking making selected prints, paintings and works on paper in her London Studio
“I have a passion for Japanese art and especially for woodblock prints, a printing technique using, traditionally, Japanese paper, cherry wood and water-based inks.” RS

Fred Gatley, ‘The Rabley Series’ Porcelain bowl with cast bronze base (Rabley inclusions)
For over thirty years Fred Gatley has been carefully incorporating found materials within his pieces, many of these introduced into the clay bodies themselves. Sands, silts, muds, brick fragments, stones and rusting iron have all been used, combined with drift woods and even waste copper scraps, all of these bringing to the work their own story and location.
In ‘The Rabley Series’ Fred has responded to the landscape and environment of Rabley Home Farm, a working arable farm set in the ancient Wiltshire downs. The landscape throws up echoes of its history including fragments from the Neolithic, Iron and Roman ages together with the everyday chips of a contemporary working farm. Continue reading →
