At Night in the Wetlands and other Images; an exhibition of linocuts, etchings and paintings by Kirsten Schmidt.

28th June – 28 July E17 Art House

E17 artist and fine art printmaker Kirsten Schmidt loves sketching in nature. She has spent the last year drawing in the many green spaces that we are lucky to have near us in Walthamstow, particularly Lloyd Park and the Walthamstow Wetlands. Kirsten believes that drawing in situ rather than from photos produces a unique quality in her work.

The result is a number of linocuts and etchings of Herons, Swans, Kingfishers and other birds in their natural habitat. “Birds are beautiful creatures and I love drawing their curvy forms, their feathers remind me of leaves.” Being a print maker and living near the William Morris Gallery, Kirsten also shows her love for Morris’ designs by incorporating thistles, peonies, willows and other plants the designer was inspired by. 

“The William Morris Garden nearby is a constant source of visual material for my prints and the vibrant colours in the summer made me get out my pastel box to try and capture them.”

The artist loves exploring different techniques, and the exhibition shows etchings from pencil drawings, linocuts with hand colouring and metal leaf details as well as pastel and oil paintings.

All pieces are for sale, and a 10% discount on custom framing applies to all unframed art purchased from E17 Art House.
