Jonathan Armstrong

Screenprint | @j_armstro

Jonathan’s print, Silence Ensures that History Repeats Itself’, references the British colonial empire suppressing the Kenyan uprising of 1952-60 and images of the ‘Black Powermovement following the 1965 assassination of Malcolm X, whose aim was to achieve self-determination for black people in the USA. Edition 1 of 4.

Lesley Syme

Mono print | @lesley_syme

Lesley’s work is inspired by the environment around her, finding beauty in simple botanical structures and forms, as here in the delicately feathered fronds of the tree fern. Working directly with the plants themselves each print is a unique and perfect impression of the frond form. Tree ferns originally found their way to the UK in the late 19th Century. Ships returning from Australia used the trunks as ballast in their holds to prevent cargoes moving about in heavy seas
