Late summer on the Wolds


Availability: Sold Category:

Michael Atkin.

Late summer on the Wolds- limited edition original Lino print. Hand printed in an edition of 30 using traditional methods using an 1889 Albion platen press.
Late summer on the Wolds is exactly that, late summer after the field has been cut, the crows and pigeons descend to eat their fill of what’s been left. The Image is looking from Racecoarse Road towards the Wolds in the background, the strange looking field shape is actually there and I’ve been watching that field for the past 20 years, seeing what the farmer does to it be it grass, corn, vegetable or whatever.

Michael Atkin prints are available to buy online and in our art gallery with Wychwood Art. Michael Atkin creates limited edition etchings, lino prints, fine art books and wood engravings. Images are figurative, narrative and located in the Yorkshire countryside. It is an imagined or remembered place. In the more vigorous of these country idylls; opposites are composed, reconciled: shadow and sunlight, water and woodland, valley and hillside.I have a blurred map of connections, of things seen, things read, places visited and other things, which once amalgamated form the imagery I conceive and commit to print. The landscape is imagined as an assemblage pieced together with vivid elements. People are dwarfed by the landscape. Images evolve from brief outline sketches made in sketchbooks. The desired composition is etched with nitric acid onto copper plates or cut into lino-blocks or end grain boxwood as engravings. The variety of mediums used by Michael requires a constant reappraisal of the image to be portrayed. With the recent addition of wood engraving, Michael wishes to add even greater detail to his work. With over 40 years experience in printmaking Michael is convinced that prints which are handmade have a bright and prosperous future. Self employed artist printmaker since 1974.
