Jacqui Dodds - Linear expression exhibition
Jacqui's way of working is to visit places and use visual memory to retrace, reliving the images and feelings of those spaces. She expresses her images and ideas in painting and printmaking, creating her own narrative and essence, removing superfluous detail.
"Acanthus" is a blank concertina book with hard covers screenprinted onto ivory kozuke paper with the inside covers are blind embossed.
The print was inspired by ironwork in the architectural design of a ceiling fitting in Shrewsbury Unitarian Church where Charles Darwin worshipped as a small boy.
The "Herringbone" book is also a blank concertina book with hand printed, lino print hard covers with the same design blind embossed on the inside covers.
It was inspired by a Roman herringbone patterned floor at Wroxeter Roman City.
"Powis Castle, Pattern" book celebrates the diverse range of pattern in textiles and objects at Powis Castle and the range of countries from which they have originated. Jacqui has brought them together in a concertina book that has been screenprinted and blind embossed.
