Kathryn Desforges and Sophie Layton Recent prints
7th July - 21st July
From 7th July – 21st July we are exhibiting recent prints by Kathryn Desforges and Sophie Layton.
About the artists
Kathryn’s work has a continuing theme of drawing attention to the ordinary. The overlooked areas of everyday life are a constant source of inspiration – corners, unoccupied spaces, landscapes, shadows, solitary objects and moments of stillness. She uses drawing, printmaking, collage, photography and film as mediums to form, distill, and abstract her ideas and imagery, keeping experimentation and the physical act of making at the core of her practice.
Sophie is an innovative, energetic person. Her time is divided between sketching in the attic space of her home in South London and creating in the print workshop at her studio in Brixton. “I love the physical and intellectual process of printmaking; the way results build up and ideas emerge onto paper, demanding constant decision-making.”
After graduating from Brighton University in 2009 she was awarded a residency at London Metropolitan University and later at the Scuola di Graphica in Venice. Sophie enjoys film, travel and taking photos, which often feed their way into her work. Her dynamic artworks have been exhibited internationally in such places as China, Italy and London.
The Private View for both exhibitions is on Thursday 12th July from 6.30 – 8.30pm.
