Tom Cartmill – New Print Edition for The London Original Print Fair

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'”.

Katherine Jones ‘The Precious Hours’ – Prints and New Works on Paper

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.
