The beautiful lines and shapes of the countryside near Clun in Shropshire inspired this print.
A reduction lino cut is a method of relief printing in which each colour layer is taken from the same block (lino), meaning that an entire edition must be printed in one go as once the lino has been carved into for the next layer, you can't go back to print more.
Ann Burnham, printmaker, available for sale with Wychwood art online and in our Deddington art gallery. Ann Burnham works from her garden studio, where she also runs regular workshops and classes in printmaking. Anns work is inspired by a fascination with the textures and patterns found in both the natural and man-made landscape around us. She is drawn to the beauty of the rolling shropshire countryside and the narrow hedgrow lanes, “I love that sense of mystery about where things may lead and where they may have originated” She enjoys the direct and rich mark making of the collagraph and monoprint processes, as well as the more precise methods of reduction lino-cut and etching, which probably reflect her graphics background.
Ann Burnham trained at Harrow School of Art and worked as a graphic designer for some years before becoming a full time printmaker. She exhibits regularly and has work in private collections in this country and abroad, and permanently on display at Greenwich Printmakers Gallery and Southbank Printmakers Gallery. She has exhibited at Bankside RE open, Society of Woman Artists at the Mall Galleries, Affordable Art Fair Battersea and Hampstead, as well as being prizewinner in the ‘Inspired by’ competition at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
