Three Gates is a limited edition print by Rob Barnes. Edition of 50. I was inspired by this view exactly from the back door of a holiday let in Derbyshire. This farm area was dotted with gates within my view and it occurred to me that, with the hill in the background, I could create a design. It reminds me now of long walks taken by stepping through any of the three gates.

Rob Barnes, artist, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Rob Barnes studied painting and printmaking at Hull College of Art and London University in the early 1960s. He taught etching, screen-printing, lino and related surface printmaking at Keswick Hall College in Norfolk. He later moved to the University of East Anglia, Norwich where he continued teaching in the School of Education until 2006. Presently he divides his time between printmaking and his other passion, playing the violin in local orchestras and for choral performances. In 2017 he began making a small number of sterling silver jewellery pieces following a course at West Dean, Sussex. His artwork follows themes, such as light on water, or shadows in the landscape. Linocuts are hand-printed on an Albion press built by Harry Rochat printers’ engineers in the London borough of Barnet. This is a copy of a press by Ulmer and Sons 1854 but much improved in design and function. It may look Victorian, but was cast and finished in 2013 as press number 0007. Rob, stretching the truth, has called it ‘James Bond’. Living half a mile from the river Yare in Norfolk, I look out across the marshes in one direction and across open fields in the other. There are muntjac deer and hares in winter chasing across the fields opposite. As spring approaches, there are times when I could almost sell tickets for the display of hares chasing and competing. There can be as many as ten in the field and they can be surprisingly large. I see them as silhouettes against the light and they never stay still for long. Another passion is drawing old wooden boats, clinker-built and seen on the Suffolk coast at Southwold and Aldeburgh.
