Origins and Inspiration
During September we will have an exhibition by local Printmaker Pauline Meade.
"During 25 years as a Printmaker I have produced original editions of 110 etchings,
226 linoprints, over 50 lithographs, monoprints and screenprints, as well as several
artists books and many tests and experiments. Editions vary from 4-30 depending on
the technique and although many have been sold, as I make new work some prints
from past editions remain in storage. I am now offering a selection of these in a
‘studio sale’ hosted by Enjoy Art in Marsden. Prices will reflect the need to make
space in my studio so I can carry on working.
Inspiration comes mainly from the natural environment of landscape, seascape and
plants, with my prints originating from sketches and notes made on location mostly in
Britain but also from visits abroad including the Alps, New Zealand, Nepal, the
Canary Islands and Azores. The exhibition includes some source reference material
to show where and how the artwork was produced.
Pauline Meade brief CV 1994 BA(Hons) 1 st Graphic Arts degree specialising in Printmaking.
From then on developing my own practice alongside technical and teaching work in
print workshops, adult and further education and schools. I currently work from my
home studio in West Yorkshire and regularly exhibit my work which has been
purchased for corporate collections and hospitals as well as many private
individuals. I am an exhibiting member of Leeds Fine Artists and some examples of
my work can be seen in the online members’ gallery."
