Artist’s Talk: Flora McLachlan RE talks about her exhibition ‘In the Forests of the Night’ – 12th November 2019, 6.30pm, Tessa Sidey Gallery, School of Art (organised by Aberystwyth Printmakers)

scan_kaw25_2019-09-12-16-03-31 copyAlongside her exhibition of etchings and lithographs at the School of Art, Flora will talk about the literary, visual and technical influences shaping her work. “For me the lithographic marks seem especially expressive of the water-carved landscape of Wales, and also of the fluidity of poetic images as they arise within the mind. The drawing seems to swim up out of the stone. I find it an essential foil to etching, where my work begins with deep dark acid-biting, followed by laboriously carving and scraping down the metal plate, polishing the light back in, and then weathering it again by painting mists and shadows with strong acid straight onto the plate.”

Free admission.
