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.

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'”.
