” J’exerce le m…

” J’exerce le métier de artiste-graveur depuis quinze ans – d’abord en Angleterre – et aujourd’hui en France, à Lauzerte où je vis depuis cinq ans. Mes gravures sont abstraites mais elles commencent leur vie comme des esquisses de paysages réalisées en plein air. Une fois de retour dans mon atelier de gravure, je transforme les traits et les formes de ces croquis en de gravures exubérantes et colorées qui, je l’espère, expriment ma joie toujours renouvelée de l’observation du paysage qui évolue sans cesse. Les gravures incluses dans cette exposition sont les fruits de mon « histoire d’amour » avec l’art du paysage qui dure déjà depuis quinze ans. ”

Well, I am sure that has got your attention…. …. now to some hard facts!  I am about to have what is probably my first really serious exhibition here in France with Chris Collister (Photographer) and Daniel Pezeril (Sculptor).  The show will run from April 26th until June 5th and if you happen to  be visiting South West France during that time, drop into L’Espace Point de Vue in Lauzerte and take a look.  For me, the show is a bit of a retropective and will feature about 25 etchings made during the past 15 years in the UK and here in France.   Some were made using copper plates, but the more recent ones were made using aluminium.  I havent seen them all together on the wall yet (we hang tomorrow), but the process of mounting and framing has made me look really closely at my work for the first time in years……  which is both terrifying and encouraging!  Encouraging because they all still seem fresh and bright but terrifying because I am not sure how exactly I have moved on over the past 15 years……… maybe somebody can tell me?

About rosalind marchant

I am an artist - I am a printmaker and I make abstract etchings. I live in a small village in south west France that is surrounded by miles of varied and colourful landscape ..... which is fortunate because my prints are inspired by the colours and patterns in that landscape.
