Drawing on Glyndebourne’s rootedness in its local landscape are hand-tinted woodcuts of the South Downs by printmaker Helen Brown, whose compositions unfurl and delight. Helen transfers her drawn image to a wooden block and then spend many hours carving. Ink is then rolled using blue in the sky and blends of greens on the land. Into the sky Helen adds paper. This is called Chine Collé. This paper may be blue, pink or patterned and it becomes part of the piece. When the print is dry, Helen paints on top as well so each print made from the block will be different.

Sold unframed.

About The Artist

Helen Brown

Helen Brown (b.1974) is a Sussex based printmaker. Her love of the South Downs began when she moved to Brighton from Cambridge in 1984. She began her training at Brighton University, where she specialised in Printmaking. After graduating, Brown started to create woodcuts of the Sussex countryside, inspired by the freedom and space of the landscape around her. She has also travelled extensively in Asia, spending time as an Artist in Residence at Trivandrum University in Kerala. The colours and life of these places are still integral part of her current work. Brown is the Co-Director of bip-Art Printmaking Studio, where she combines making her own work alongside teaching printmaking to those new to the medium. All her works are made by hand on a Columbian press dating from 1844. Brown regularly exhibits at art fairs and in group shows, and sells her work at Ditchling Museum of Art & Craft amongst other galleries. Brown’s work has also been featured on BBC Countryfile.
