An exhibition of prints and moving image by Angela Harding & Wuon-Gean Ho, who selected the Small Print International works alongside curator Jennifer Ramkalawon. 'Light Line' describes the process of carving a relief block. Lino and vinyl cutting involves carving channels into the surface to leave a light, or white line. Both Angela and Wuon-Gean work from dark to light to create their work, and use similar tools and materials.
Angela Harding has been carving out her career as an artist since studying Fine Art at Leicester Polytechnic and Printmaking at Nottingham Trent University in the early 1980s. In 1988 she moved to Rutland, where she continues to live and make prints from her homestudio based in Wing - an aptly named location for an artist whose work is richly inspired by nature and wildlife. The nearby Rutland Water attractsa great diversity of birdlife that is well renowned.
Wuon-Gean Ho was born in Oxford, and graduated with a BA in History of Art from Cambridge University, before taking up a Japanese Government Scholarship in 1998 to study woodblock printmaking in Japan. She returned to the UK to work with print, artist’s books and animation, and has exhibited widely in juried, invited and solo shows. She has been teaching printmaking since 2007 in London, Italy, China and the USA, and worked for many years as studio technician in East London Printmakers, where she is currently Chair. She is currently studying for Masters at the Royal College of Art. Since 2013 she has been news editor for the magazine Printmaking Today. Her work is held in the National Art Library at the Victoria and Albert Museum
