Summer Exhibition at the Southbank Printmakers

This Summer kicks off to an exciting start with our Artist in Focus, Kit Boyd.

Kit is influenced by the Neo-romantic artists of the 1940's and the Surrealist movement.  His evocative landscapes, drawn from the Mid-Wales/Shropshire borders, are a vision in themselves and a celebration of the pastoral idyll.


Kit's 'Man on a Laptop' is a landscape too, but demonstrates the coexistence of our world, with all its technology, with the pastoral world of Samuel Palmer, Graham Sutherland and Paul Nash.

 And what better describes our interconnectedness with nature than the archetypal image of the Green Man?

Winter Green Man
Finally, my personal favourite the 'Shining Path'  I want to be the figure on the road, travelling eternally from where to where? always by the light of the brilliant moon.

 You can see more of Kit's work at the Gallery  He will have an enhanced exhibition here from Monday 16th - 29th June.  His etchings are available framed, unframed, or in the form of cards for all occasions.  You can whet your appetite by visiting his website and read all about his influences and inspirations, exhibitions and prizes.
