This exhibition will show the beautiful prints of Angie Lewin alongside a selection of jewellers whose work will complement Angie’s imagery.
Angie studied Fine Art Printmaking at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design between 1983 and 1986, followed by a year’s part-time postgraduate printmaking at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts. After working in London as an illustrator she studied horticulture and a move to Norfolk prompted her return to printmaking.
Inspired by both the clifftops and saltmarshes of the North Norfolk coast and the Scottish Highlands, she depicts these contrasting environments and their native flora in wood engraving, linocut, silkscreen, lithograph and collage. These landscapes are often glimpsed through intricately detailed plantforms. Attracted to the relationships between plant communities on an intimate level, even the fine lines of insect eggs on a flower bud are observed in her work. Still lives often incorporate seedpods, grasses, flints and dried seaweed collected on walking and sketching trips. A Wedgwood cup designed by Ravilious, may contain feathers and seedheads.
Jewellers include Selina Campbell, Melissa Hunt, Naomi James, Ulli Kaiser, Rebecca Lawley, Ann Little, Nicola Mather, Miranda Sharpe, Adele Taylor & Melissa Yarlett.
