Angie Lewin ‘Meadow and Shore’ at Sarah Wiseman Gallery
40-41 S Parade
Oxford OX2 7JL
Sarah Wiseman Gallery is proud to announce ‘Meadow and Shore’ a highly anticipated solo exhibition of new prints by Angie Lewin.
Featuring brand-new prints, this will be Angie’s second solo exhibition at Sarah Wiseman Gallery.
She says, ‘The native wildflowers of England and Scotland are the subject of the limited-edition wood engravings, linocuts and screen-prints in this exhibition.
‘From the Outer Hebrides to the North Norfolk coast and places in-between, I depict plant forms against the backdrop of shore, sea and sky. By contrast, the wildflowers and grasses that find their way into my garden also often reveal structures equally as captivating as those of more exotic cultivated species, inspiring sketches which I develop into limited edition prints. Also included in this selection of prints are studio still life compositions of gathered shoreline finds, wild and garden seed-heads and my collection of often chipped and cracked ceramics.’
Angie Lewin’s printmaking has earned her devoted collectors all around the world. Her keen eye for detail and bold yet delicate style is utterly distinct, as she moves with ease through several printmaking techniques which include lithography, silkscreen and wood-engraving.
Her palette is soft, even muted in tone, but with punches of strong colour, such as with the glossy red rowan berries typically found in the Scottish countryside. With her Norfolk-inspired work, chalkier tones with strong blues are in evidence.
As well as working on editions of her prints, Angie designs textiles for St Judes, the company she runs with her husband Simon. Dividing her time between Norfolk, Edinburgh and Speyside, Angie’s work is very much influenced by her natural surroundings. Angie will spend much of her time outside, sketching and collecting shells, leaves and feathers to add to her still-life.
