We are delighted to reveal new prints by the Liverpool-based printmaker Lindsey Moran. Lindsey first started working with Sarah Wiseman Gallery earlier this year when she exhibited a print series for our group show ‘Inner Space’. Lindsey travelled from Liverpool to Oxford to see her work in situ and visit the gallery, and it was then she fell in love with Oxford.
She has created a striking new series inspired by Christchurch College and in particular The Museum of Natural History, capturing the cathedral -like light and atmosphere in what is ostensibly a place that houses and celebrates science.
‘Following my first visit to the Sarah Wiseman Gallery in March I took the opportunity to visit some key landmarks in Oxford. I love education and architecture, so I was especially drawn to Oxford Museum of Natural History. It’s a striking example of Victorian neo-Gothic architecture and a building that was designed to educate and inform. A true place of awe and wonder; stunning architecture coupled with a creative curation of artefacts that draw onlookers through a wide range of fascinating vistas. Curious carvings, decorative pillars, and arches that frame incredible compositions; a building that breathes education through every aspect and a true temple for science.’
Lindsey has a keen interest in the relationship between printmaking, and photography. She carries a camera everywhere and likes to capture the influence of light on both natural and manmade environments. Lindsey's work highlights how digital technology has greatly contributed to the enthusiasm, interest, and renewal of antiquated photographic processes with a particular focus on photogravure.
Lindsey spent a research fellowship looking at the role of the computer in fine art printmaking; - integrating different print/photographic processes, which has influenced the direction of her work. Lindsey works predominantly with photopolymer, experimentally combining the technique with chine collé and archival inkjet. She enjoys a technical challenge combined with the unpredictable nature of printmaking.
Lindsey has a workspace at Hub Studios, located at Northern Lights, Cains Brewery Village, Baltic Triangle, Liverpool.
Lindsey's new prints will go on show from 12th November.
