'The Living Air' - New works by Jennifer Lane
& Louise Leonard


This is a two person show with both artists being members of Graphic Studio Dublin. Jennifer Lane specializes in woodblock printmaking. Her new prints derive from an extensive series of drawings from life of pine trees found in the Curragh, Co Kildare and the Alentejo region of Portugal. Louise Leonard combines the techniques of etching and linocut to depict her imagery of landscapes and birds.

Born in Dublin, Jennifer Lane is a long established printmaker and member of Graphic Studio Dublin. Lane specializes in woodblock printmaking and her work has been exhibited in Peking, Singapore, and Yohohama, Japan. Other major group exhibitions include Art into Art in the National Gallery of Ireland and Holy Show and Gardens of Earthly Delight in the Chester Beatty Library. Lane's woodblock prints derive from an extensive series of drawings from life of pine trees found in the Curragh, Co Kildare and the Alentejo region of Portugal. Her works depict the shape, line and character of the tree and dramatizes the elliptical curve of the branches and cones. Furthermore small rectangles and circles are employed as a structural device to represent the surrounding landscape echoing the classical Japanese woodblock as in the works of Hiroshige, a dominant figure in 19th century Japanese landscape printmaking.

Graduating from NCAD, Louise Leonard specialized in illustration and her work is published by Fallons, Gill & Macmillan and The Educational Company of Ireland. Her works are in many private collections in Ireland, UK, Canada and Crete. Leonard combines the techniques of etching and linocut to depict her imagery of landscapes and birds. Her linocuts of bird prints pay tribute to the art of typography and to the old style typesetters. The etchings depict the contrasting landscapes of Croatia, West of Ireland and Austria. Leonard re-invents the dancing angel, inspired by the Romanesque ceiling of Montoire-sur-Cher, St Giles printed on hand made Nepalese Lokta paper. Each image tells a personal story from places visited to stills of day-to-day experiences.

Artists Jennifer Lane & Louise Leonard will give a talk on Thursday 5th February from 3pm - 4pm
