Prints by Roy Willingham

The artist Roy Willingham RE works across a variety of media including artists books and 3d constructions and has been working with printmaking since the 1980s. This exhibition focusses on one of his favourite media - the colour linocut, and a perennial theme of landscape, both urban and rural. Here you will see broad vistas and more confined places from across Europe in which he ponders the mutable identity of location and how to depict it. His work exemplifies an attention to detail and a richness and depth of colour.

Most of the works exhibited here have been printed on his Hopkinson & Cope Albion Press from 1859, similar in appearance and function to some of the presses still used here at St. Brides.

Roy Willingham is a long time member of the Printmakers Council and of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers with whom he exhibits regularly at the Bankside Gallery just across the river. His work has been exhibited in many countries around the world including America, Russia, Japan and Australia. Several public Institutions hold examples of his work including the V&A, Fitzwilliam Museum and Bodleian Library.
