Here’s another image to take your mind off the news. Another fellow graduate of Manchester College of Art and someone who has developed into a fine printmaker. Ros Forster has an exhibition at the beginning of December in Derbyshire, and if you can get there, get there. A talented cutter of lino, the resulting prints are well worth a view and a dip into the bank account.
This is a lino cut print from one of my old college chums, Rosalind Forster. I’ve just been building a website for her ( don’t get too excited, I don’t write code or any of that malarkey, it’s all template stuff ) and have had the chance to look through a lot of her work. Like me she’s been drawing for a living for years but her strength is really in capturing the light and printmaking. This is a lino cut and I’m simply amazed at the skills she has to be able to produce such wonderful images.You can read more about Rosalind’s work and working methods, as well as some of here brilliant watercolours of England and Spetses in Greece where she now lives all on her new website: http://www.rosalindforster.moonfruit.com .I’m sure you won’t regret dropping in.
