Sue Owen -

I taught Art Textiles in F.E for many years before retiring and having the time to focus on my own work which focuses on my love of colour, pattern and texture in textiles.

Starting points are usually experimental mark making using collage, drawing or mixed media techniques. Several of my pieces are constructed of layers of dyed and printed fabrics which are pieced together to create depth of colour and spontaneous imagery. It is the materials themselves which indicate the direction the work will take, and often ideas change as I introduce new fabrics or recycle pieces. I particularly like working with sheer fabrics printed using heat transfer techniques, these overlay well with the more robust shapes and colours of screen printed fabrics and surface interest is achieved through hand and machine embroidery. Recent work has included painted elements which are enhanced with the addition of fabrics and stitch.

Much of my work embraces natural forms however I also enjoy experimenting with abstract designs inspired by my printed fabrics

Steve Owen -

Starting points for the paintings are quite often the faded graphics in 50’s and 60’s magazines and often there is a fair amount of ‘pop’ ephemera buried in the resulting imagery. Paintings start fairly chaotic but are gradually ‘tamed’ however the temptation to reach a finished outcome too quickly is often difficult to resist. Initial shapes and collage material lie half concealed under washes of colour-half eroded and scratched away, and what may appear spontaneous in the work often requires destruction, obliteration, reworking and refining.

The limited edition prints in the exhibition are a new development, and incorporate layers of mono printing and paint combined with photo screen prints. Starting points are anything from London’s city and industrial buildings such as the Shard and Greenwich’s endangered and historical gasometer.

Steve Owen studied Fine Art Painting at Wimbledon School of Art before embarking on a career teaching Art in secondary schools and FE colleges.

PRINT SIX + @ SPROUT ARTS

Tuesday 29th October - Saturday 16th November 2019

Open Tuesday - Sunday, 11am – 5pm

Private View Tuesday 29th October, 6 - 8pm

Screen Print your own Christmas Bauble, 2nd Nov 2 - 3pm more info

Print Six return to Sprout and we are now plus one!  Print Six + brings together seven local artist-printmakers who met at Putney School of Art and Design.  We use screen print as a method to create surprisingly different styles and genres; from the boldly graphic to delicate one-offs, from mono-print to colourful animal prints, from intricate pattern to works that take their starting point in nature, all our prints are original artworks produced by hand.

 

Participating Artists:

Sarah Acland trained as a geologist, graduating from the University of Cambridge with a first class honours in Geological Sciences and has a PhD from University of Durham in geochemistry. She has over the last 25 years done many art and design short courses in a variety of media including calligraphy, fine art, textiles, paper-making, photography and most recently screen-printing at Putney School of Art and Design.

Before concentrating on her art and bringing up a young family, she worked as an editor at the Mineralogical Society and at the charity RADAR. She has exhibited her work locally with the Friday Group. Sarah’s work is often inspired by her travels as a geologist or from her hobbies such as mineral collecting, fashion, or gardening. Her approach to art is experimental and although much of her work is screen-prints, she enjoys producing small-scale mixed media installations and has produced several collections of jewellery.

Currently attending Putney School of Art, Susi regularly exhibits across London as part of The Friday Group and Print Six.

Cath Lloyd studied surface pattern design at university, which led to a lifelong interest in the interaction of pattern & colour. She introduces pattern into many of her prints, from simple doodles to texture and typography. An interest in icons and bold graphical imagery also plays a part in much of her work. A playful sense of humour is present in many of her pieces, either in the work itself or in the associated title. Cath is also available for commissions for specific requests.

Julie Sullock studied Fine Art at St. Martin's School of Art and then completed an MA in Printmaking at Brighton Polytechnic. Her abstract work is inspired by London buildings, gardens and the colours of the reflections in the city and brake lights in the rain. She enjoys combining different printing mediums such as Screen and Etching which produce different qualities. Her work is concerned with colour, composition and mood. She has recently exhibited prints at Bankside Gallery and the Mall Galleries. Julie is a member of The Printmakers Council and Southbank Printmakers, an artist run gallery in Gabriel's Wharf, where more of her work can be viewed.

Eva Ohman-Bass worked as a primary school teacher for most of her working life and took up screen printing when she retired. She has been a member of the Putney School of Art and Design for the last ten years.

Eva takes her inspiration from her native country Sweden as well as her extensive travels around the world. She really enjoys using all the different techniques that can be explored in the screen printing process. She uses her own photographs and drawings as well as newspaper cuttings and found paper as her material, playing with colours and images to creating layers of colour in her prints.

She is a keen member of The Friday Group, exhibiting in various places in London.
