The Smallprint Co. is pleased to bring Seventy Years by Anna Johnson (Printmaker) to The Gallery, kickstarting our exciting exhibitions programme for 2017.
The exhibition shows self portraits by Green Door Printmaking Studio‘s Creative Director, Anna, which have been created over the last 70 years at odd moments in time, in various media.
The images are all translated into etchings using alternative techniques on different metals. They reflect fleeting moments and moods, some from long ago. Included are notes and fragments of books being read at the time, just as they were in the original sketches.
Also included in the exhibition are a series of photopolymer etchings entitled ‘Parts of Me’ that were featured in Green Door Printmaking Studio’s recent collaborative exhibition, ‘Worn’ (The Old Station Gallery). This series of etchings emphasise the effects of passing time on the artist’s skin.
