Went to the Graves to see the exhibition of prints. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for months.
I wasn’t disappointed. His long career in newspapers in Sheffield was combined with a wide range of printmaking studied at Sheffield College of Art. He then went on to create work for United Artists, the GPO and Sainsbury’s.
Whilst I can admire the skill in his drypoint and etching, it was the linocut that was the most rivetting – possibly Vorticist influenced, reminds me of the wonderful ‘Lopping Season’ linocut.
