'Dinner' grey colourway letterpress poster by Fiona Hamilton.Printed on 130gsm Seawhite paper.Paper measures 40cm x 50cm.Open edition, signed in pencil in bottom right.
"This was the last thing I printed in the Letterpress studios on my MA so it had to be worthwhile! Printed using 8 and 10 line Souvenir wooden type from probably the 60s or 70s. It was also the very last chance I had to use the lovely wooden type and the 1960s Vandercook presses in the print centre at UWE so I had to do something worthwhile!"
Text reads: What shall we have for dinner?
The eternal question that is asked nearly every night to a partner! Printed on 40cm x 50cm sized paper to fit a standard off-the-shelf frame. Also looks good with a slim mount.
About the artist:
Fiona Hamilton is a Bristol based printmaker. Her work explores the ecological sublime and an appreciation of the majesty of nature. She uses detailed intaglio etching, drypoint, lithography and chine collé to draw the viewer into an ethereal landscape that has an impact on our sense of place in relation to the natural world. She uses primarily black and white with natural tones of chine collé and sometimes layers of lithographic texture to introduce warmth to the stark palette and to invoke a sublime emotional connection. She works from sketches, photographs, notes and memory to create her prints.
Fiona has an MA in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking from The University of the West of England (2023). Previously she studied Graphic Fine Art at Canterbury (2002) and established Soma Gallery in 2004.
