Gini Wade

Artist Statement

Gini Wade studied printmaking and graphic design at the Central School of Arts & Crafts (now Central St Martins) and worked as an illustrator and childrens’ book author for many years. She was a post-graduate student at the University of Aberystwyth from 2007 -10 and was awarded an MA in Fine Art, with distinction. She specialised in lithography with Paul Croft RE.
She is based in mid Wales where she makes prints. After working to illustration briefs for so many years, she enjoys the freedom to choose her own subject matter. Her work draws on myths and dreams, with a dash of the dark side. She is a DJ, and dance and celebrations inform many of her images. She also makes animations.

She has taught printmaking in Hong Kong and Guatemala, and runs lithography workshops for the Sidney Nolan Trust, Herefordshire, and for Aberystwyth Printmakers. In 2014 she was accepted onto the plate lithography Summer Course at the prestigious Tamarind Institute, Albuquerque.
Her prints are held in private collection all over the world, and also in public collections: the Wellcome Library Collection, the V & A, the Zuckerman Museum of Art, USA, the Ewing Gallery of Art, USA, Hunan Fine Art Institute, the University of Aberystwyth Collection, and the Contempory Art Society for Wales Collection. She is a director of Aberystwyth Printmakers and contributes articles to Printmaking Today

Annaig Catesson

Artist Statement

I like to represent what I see, dream or imagine. Brittany, my birthplace has a great impact on my art as I am inspired by sea life, legends and tales. I am also influenced by the work of Moebius, Enki Bilal and my brother Sven de Rennes.
I love to work on zinc or copper, mixing up techniques, colours and effects.

Jane Northcote

Artist’s statement:
Jane Northcote makes small pictures, mostly of buildings, mostly in London. Some of the pictures are for cards, to post to friends.
Her idea is to show the layers of time visible in the skyline. New buildings tower over old ones, reminding us that these new buildings will themselves be engulfed in the future.
The etchings are often based on pen and wash sketches she’s done on location in the city.
