Connections: A British Artist’s Re-envisioning of Everyday Objects on Linocut Prints
Why We Recommend it
Brighton-based artist Hannah Forward explores the relationship between the subjects that end up in her linocut prints at her latest exhibition in Hong Kong’s art book and magazine boutique.
Forward is an artist and printmaker who works from her studio in Hove on the south coast of the United Kingdom. She studied Graphic Design at Brighton University before becoming a full-time printmaker in 2018. Her work captures the everyday events and artefacts of modern life, with particular attention to social events and personal pastimes. She uses vivid colours and bold shapes to create detailed, textured prints which have a sense of movement and strong graphic quality.
Whether it be a girl cuddling up to her cat or a couple sharing a glass wine, a game of football, these connections and relationships form the vibrancy of her work and modern life. She captures these images in Linocut (also called linoleum cut), a type of relief print. The print is made from a sheet of linoleum into which the artist hand-carves in the design.
The exhibition is companioned by printing teaser sessions on 27 July and 10 August 2019 at 3:30pm – 5:00pm. To register, please e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
