New Printmaker! December 04 2021

We are pleased to introduce a new artist - Jenny Ing - to the gallery.  Jenny's work mainly features the urban environment and the places she knows best and Urban scenes feature regularly in her work. It is an interest in architecture and a fascination with the way space is taken up in cities,  that has led her to create these pieces, as well as the patterns, repetition and colours found in the built environment. Some of this interest occasionally spills over to lead her to create works of other subject matter.

Jenny works in relief print - a hand process involving cutting away areas from the surface of a flat block of lino, inking the remaining area and printing from this on to paper. She uses oil based inks and print on high quality 100% cotton rag Fabriano paper and uses a 170 year old Albion Press.

Purple Gallery now stocks Jenny's Birmingham prints and these are available to purchase in the gallery or online.
