Susie Rumsby – New Prints
27 Apr 2018 - 18 May 2018
Susie Rumsby is a Leeds-based printmaker and zinester, who you may have noticed lurking around Leeds Arts University and Leeds Print Workshop. This assortment of new work features architectural mash-ups, jewel-toned Brutalism, shadowy lines and block prints, and Yorkshire landmarks rejigged and reworked with love.
Susie lived for 6 years in Oregon before moving home to West Yorkshire, and the contrasts between US/UK architectural styles feed into many of these prints. The architectural idiosyncrasies of place, what makes a house a shelter and a home, and what makes cold concrete beloved are all questions explored in this work.
Prints, patches, handbound notebooks and zines will all be on sale!
