London Original Print Fair 2019 – MONOPRINTS – Katherine Jones

http://www.rableydrawingcentre.com

RABLEY GALLERY AT THE LONDON ORIGINAL PRINT FAIR 2019
25th – 28th April 2019
STAND 34

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 info@rableygallery.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.

Royal Academy Exhibition

Hide and Seek

Drawings by Eileen Cooper RA

29 May — 23 August 2015

Eileen Cooper RA 'Hide and Seek' Royal Academy ADThis summer the RA celebrates the art of Eileen Cooper RA with an exhibition of drawings spanning almost 40 years of her career.

This exhibition, which coincides with the publication of a monograph celebrating Cooper’s career, presents drawings spanning almost 40 years. Cooper creates work that possesses a strongly poetic and distinctive vision, and the artist has been described as a ‘magical realist’. An accomplished painter and printmaker, Cooper’s practice has always been underpinned by drawing. This remarkable body of work illustrates how her distinctive imagery has developed through making drawings that explore such subjects as sexuality, birth, family, fecundity and creativity. We are delighted to display, as part of the exhibition, the artist’s gift to the Royal Academy Collections of ten previously unseen mixed-media drawings. These feature Cooper’s iconic female figures, and are multi-layered and complex in form.

Emma Stibbon Loss, Landscape and Goodbye..

Loss, Landscape and Goodbye HMS Protector final blog..

As we depart from the Peninsula and the last small growler if ice disappears on the horizon I am struck by a sense of loss, I realise I am unlikely to have the opportunity to return to this remarkable landscape. The Peninsula coastline is astoundingly beautiful and perplexing. In visiting such a remote place I become acutely aware that this is a climate that can’t sustain human life. One has the sense of being overwhelmed by nature, an awareness that we are just a species like any other. Apparently the last pristine wilderness this is an environment that profoundly influences the planet’s oceans and climate.

22. Ship sunsetThanks

My thanks to Scott Polar Research Institute for selecting me for the Antarctica Artist Placement 2013, and Bonhams for their sponsorhip. A big thank you to HMS Protector and the ship’s company for making me so welcome me onboard.

These blogs have not been posted in real time due to the remote location.

Emma Stibbon will be exhibiting at Rabley Contemporary in November 2013 – so keep posted!
