Emma Stibbon – Territories of Print
We are pleased to announce the publication of »Emma Stibbon – Territories of Print 1994-2019«. Concurrently to Emma Stibbon’s solo exhibition at the Rabley Drawing Centre, this monograph shows the artist as a »witness« to our landscape and environment on the cusp of change: polar regions; volcanoes; deserts; coastal and urban. Through the alchemy of printmaking Stibbon envelops us in her experiences with monumental woodcuts and tactile intaglio prints, where volcanic ash is embedded into the printing plate.
With an essay by Gill Saunders, Senior Curator (Prints), V&A Museum: »Stibbon, likewise, draws from the printmaker’s prosaic materials images which are marvellous and compelling, images which expand our imagination and leave us awe-struck.«
