In Anne Desmet's latest exhibition elements from engravings and linocuts are delicately pasted onto small fragments of glass, mirror and roof tile. Other prints show the transition from early proof to the ‘finished' cut or engraved block.
There is a dramatic change in scale from the tiniest scrap of engraving to larger scale but still finely cut linocuts. Much of the work here relates to the urban environment and in particular the Victorian Swimming baths in Manchester currently undergoing restoration. Inspiring work!
