Laura Sowerby

I like to hone in on the minutiae of things and it is the beauty in the detail that I try to capture in the print works. 

I aim to evoke an up-close experience of place - be that a hedgerow, vegetable patch or garden wall clad with climbers. As William Blake wrote, 'Nature and Art in this together suit what is Most Grand is always most Minute'. 

I enjoy taking more of a painter's approach when it comes to colour, preferring to apply several colours directly to the same block and using no more than two blocks to make a single print. 

I enjoy the spontaneity this method of working with colour affords and the variety of effects it creates. This also makes each print within the edition quite distinct. I print by hand and use oil based inks on Japanese paper.
