Sarah Woods: From Newlyn to the North Cliffs

We are delighted to be exhibiting a brand new collection of etchings by Sarah Woods. Since first showing with Beside The Wave in 2017 Sarah has gained an ever growing following of collectors. In this new body of work Sarah has continued to explore the North Coast of Cornwall; The coastline inspiring compositions focusing on the motion of water and expanse of sky. The negative space of a print reveals clean contours and the subtle movement of ink across the plate. Gentle tones appear with the repeated motion of the hand and the direction of line.

"This is a new collection of etchings focuses on the methodical process of observing and drawing the landscape. The coastline from Newlyn to the North cliffs of St Agnes has inspired a series of prints that follow the edge of the land and capture the subtle changes along the way.

Each print begins with a sketchbook drawing that is slowly worked into an etching and printed to a limited edition in the studio. When working with a plate my practice of printmaking focuses on the movement of ink and the direction of hand-drawn lines, becoming familiar with the marks that are unique to each piece.

For me, this collection is a reminder of the quiet moments along the coast and reflects the calm and balance that being beside the water brings." - Sarah Woods July 2019

Sarah is a careful artist, she holds a precise attention to detail and is constantly challenging herself and her practice. The balance she strikes between simple and intricate in her compositions is always expertly judged. Her work is such a refreshing take on the Cornish landscape that we love - and this collection has to be her best work to date. - Florence Lowry, Gallery Manager
