In A Fine Line, Angie Lewin depicts native flora in the coastal landscape - from North Norfolk to North Uist. Her images evoke a sense of place, the essence of certain plants and how they are shaped by their environment. These themes recur in her work through the gathered natural finds and sketches made on location which are developed into prints in a variety of mediums, collages and watercolours. Her subject-matter evolves gradually over time as she observes the same plants and other natural inspiration throughout the seasons in familiar locations.
Here Lewin’s largest linocut to date, Saltmarsh Storm, contrasts with intimate collages made with driftwood and other materials collected from the shoreline. Printed elements, hand-cut from Japanese paper, are applied to these found objects.
Angie Lewin studied BA (Hons) Fine Art Printmaking at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, followed by a year’s postgraduate printmaking at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts.
Lewin is a member of the Royal Society of Painter - Printmakers, the Royal Watercolour Society, the Society of Wood Engravers and the Art Workers' Guild. Collections holding her work include the Victoria & Albert Museum, Ashmolean Museum, the London Institute and Aberystwyth University.
