Easter at Southbank Printmakers

Apart from the exciting shenanigans at Gabriel's Wharf this weekend - which includes the annual Easter egg hunt

- we have, not one, not two, but THREE new members and are very excited to be offering their work for sale in the Gallery.

In no particular order (apart from alphabetical) I can share a preview of their images here.

Above are two by Buffy Kimm 'Poles Apart' and 'Venice'.  Buffy takes inspiration from photography, particularly abstract detail in architecture and natural forms. She looks for the obscure and unusual angles, rather than the straightforward image and is fascinated by light and shadow. She enjoys experimenting with etching techniques, using multiple etching plates in some of her pieces, and likes to add different media to explore innovative solutions to her work.



Richard Peacock is a printmaker based at the Chocolate Factory studios in North London. He makes screen prints and woodcuts. His work combines elements of abstraction and pop art, with a love of colour and rhythm. He often uses discarded packaging to make the stencils for his screen prints and raids skips for wood for his wood cuts. He exhibits widely, nationally and internationally.

Emerging Blocks

The Divisibility of the Body
We also welcome Charlotte Whiston.  She is an artist whose inspiration for her work, which usually takes the form of silk screen print, comes from contemporary metaphysics and the philosophy of mind. Charlotte’s aim as an artist is to create work that depicts an idea or theory, such as the mind-body problem and emergent properties, in a way that is visually novel and stimulating.

So much to see and four fabulous days free to wonder down our way!
