Description

Offering art lovers a fresh perspective on London, its architecture, and geography, Guildhall Art Gallery celebrates the work of artist and specialist wood engraver, Anne Desmet RA.

The exhibition sees the artist slicing into prints focused on London from her earlier wood-engravings, linocuts and hand-drawn lithographs to make a new series of digital collages, inspired by looking at a fragmented view of the world through a toy kaleidoscope.

Spanning over three decades of Desmet’s documentation of London through the mediums of wood engraving and mixed-media printed collage, the exhibition will feature 150 works, including 41 London-themed kaleidoscopic prints created exclusively for this exhibition, and a selection of tools and engraved wood blocks.

Desmet’s prints create a unique dialogue between time and change, depicting the evolution of urban landscapes - from ancient Rome and Pompeii to London.
