Hetty Haxworth’s prints are a response to the landscapes of rural Aberdeenshire, where she lives and the contrasting man-made structures within it. Executed with technical precision, her abstract prints & paintings reflect the power of memory and captivate moments of colour.
Geometry and attention to detail are the core of her rigorous discipline. From screen print to monoprint, watercolours to painted reliefs, Hetty demonstrates a talent for remaining versatile in her practise. With her impressive skillset, she guides her prints through variable paths, often referring to the work as ‘a journey that lends itself to a certain medium’, while stating that ‘changing the medium keeps the work fresh’. Her approach reflects fluctuating elements, the weather, terrain, seasons, and how they impact the landscape as she records subtle changes through time.
Hetty was born in Oxford and moved to rural Aberdeenshire 10 years ago, where her practise began to take shape in the geometric abstract landscapes we see today. Studying at the Glasgow School of Art, she has since gained recognition exhibiting at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts, The Scottish Society of Artists and selected touring shows to Ohio, Australia, Los Angeles, Denmark and Brussels.
