IMPRINT by John Jones
10 – 25 MAY 2014
Thursdays to Sundays 1 - 5pm
Private View Friday 9 May 6 – 9pm
Jones is an artist-printmaker, specializing in figurative colour linoprints. His subjects are derived from memorable sightings and occasions, often based on his coastal or moorland surroundings in Yorkshire. He explores varied interpretations of his chosen topics by modifying the printing techniques. The prints are produced by the 'reduction-block' method by which successive overlaying colours are printed progressively from the same linoblock or blocks, with the block(s) being cut or etched away (ie 'reduced') between each colour stage. This ensures accurate colour registration, but also means that only one edition of each complete image is possible. He uses an 1840 'Albion' cast-iron platen handpress to produce his prints. Jones has refined the technique to achieve an intensity and depth in his work. Using a subtle but rich palette, he displays an expert eye for composition, draughtsmanship and colour.
There will be an opportunity to meet the artist and hear him talk of his work on Saturday 24 May from 2.30 – 3.30pm.
The talk is free but places are limited. To ensure your booking please contact the gallery manager Lou Beer on 07970 628854 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
