Leicester Print Workshop Showcase exhibition

Nancy Power is a self-taught printmaker living in the East Midlands. She mainly produces reduction linocuts, printed from dark to light, which depict scenes from the local countryside, coastal views, plants and animals.

Nancy has been working as a linocut artist for over seven years now, after having had a thirty year career in the textiles and clothing industry.

Following a redundancy four years ago, she decided to go full time as an artist, creating prints, presenting her work at fairs and exhibitions, completing commissions and delivering workshops in her studio and with community groups.

Her work has mainly focused on creating reduction linocut prints of landscapes, trees, coastal scenes, plants and animals. Nancy had planned lots of trips in 2020 to get new inspiration – exhibitions to visit, people to see etc… but then, all that changed. She decided to use this time to do something very different in response to the current situation.

“I have called this series Layers of Life, intimating the seemingly endless days we have all been through and how many of us have coped. I decided to use one shape and print it over and over, using a limited colour palette in each. On images like Breathe and Wave’ I could be freer with the placement of the block, within the circle, but with Shelter, Protect and Immerse, I had to place the blocks perfectly for good registration. These prints have definitely challenged me and have taught me about colour, using a limited palette, and how to interpret my thoughts into a shape.” – Nancy Power, September 2020

All of the work in the exhibition is for sale.

The Print Room is sometimes used for meetings, so please call LCB Depot on 0116 261 6800 or email to check availability before making your visit.
