HollyDeanArtist: Often Medieval in Mood: Impression | Expression

Impression | Expression

What do you get when you put letterpress printing and mixed media art together? An exciting joint exhibit at Studio22 Open Gallery in Kingston, that's what!!!

My love of calligraphy, medieval manuscripts, nature and gothic architecture inspires my evocative, abstract mixed media artwork, altered images and book arts.

Larry's love of typography informs his use of the ancient techniques of bookbinding, block printing and letterpress printing to create illustrated broadsides, prints and books.

In our work, we share the use of line, text and design. As individual artists, our work expresses a pleasing contrast between rich layers of colour and texture, and the tactile black and white impression of letterpress...

An exhibition of work by Holly Dean and Larry Thompson
Including linoprints, woodcuts, mixed media art, book arts, altered images and letterpress books.
