New Work from Angie Lewin at St Judes

We've shared the work of Angie Lewin with you before. You can see some of her nature inspired wallpapers here. But we were blown away by this new linocut called The Gardener's Arms.


Angie's cherished 'Gardener's Arms' jug was the inspiration for this new seven colour linocut print, The engraved and hand painted decoration flows off the jug, forming the landscape in which it sits and merging with the teasels, echinops and astrantia that were gathered from the garden.


The print measures 585mm x 430mm and is printed in seven colours. The edition size is 85 copies and unframed copies are Β£395.00 unframed.

Inspired by both the clifftops and saltmarshes of the North Norfolk coast and the Scottish Highlands, I depict these contrasting environments and their native flora in wood engraving, linocut, silkscreen, lithograph and collage. These landscapes are often glimpsed through intricately detailed plantforms.

As well as designing fabrics and stationery for St Jude’s, which she runs with my husband Simon, Angie has completed commissions for Penguin, Faber, Conran Octopus, Merrell and Picador. She has also designed fabrics for Liberty.


The Gardeners Arms is to be first exhibited as part of Airs, Reels and Ballads at The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh from 1-29 November.
