Felicity Warbrick

Visit Artist's Website

The graphic work of Felicity Warbrick allies astonishing technical virtuosity and a remarkably idiosyncratic imagination. She utilises a technique not dissimilar from that practiced by Paul Klee in the first decade of the twentieth century, inking a glass plate prior to meticulous drawing – in biro! – on the reverse of the sheet, thereby picking up the ink from the plate. The subject matter stems in part from her memories of a rural childhood spent on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales and in part from appropriated imagery of the mid-west of the US. The results invariably evoke an (often elusive) narrative and are never less than captivating.
