Jennie Ing, printmaker of the week
Our printmaker of the week is Jennie Ing
Jennie’s work mainly features the urban environment and the places she knows best: London and its nearby area. It is an interest in architecture and a fascination with the way space is taken up in our cities that have led to these pieces, as well the patterns, repetition and colours found in the built environment. Some of this interest occasionally spills over to lead to work of other subject matter.
She works in relief print, using the reduction method to achieve her layers of bold colour. This involves printing each colour separately, with the successive cutting away of areas from the surface of a flat block of lino, inking the remaining area and printing from this onto paper, continuing until the finished print is achieved. All of this is done by hand with the printing taken place on a Victorian Albion press. With the reduction block there is no going back and the whole edition must be finished at the same time.
Jennie trained in printmaking at Croydon College and Wimbledon School of Art. She exhibits with various printmaking and artist groups and you can find her work in our Ealing shop where it is currently featured in our window display and is also available to buy on our website.
