Laura Boswell

 

The work or Laura Boswell evokes a feeling for the familiar and loved, rather than an accurate depiction of a place, perhaps a type of season or day, jogging memories for the viewer of places they have been, weather they have experienced or walks they have taken, depicting space and distance ‘When I see recognition dawn, I know I’m getting it right.’

Many of Laura Boswell’s prints are created using the ancient method of traditional Japanese woodblock printing, which demands patience, discipline and an instinct for balance, her training has included a residency at Nagasawa learning from the experts who are keen to pass on their knowledge.  Other work uses reduction linocut process – each layer is printed and the block is progressively cut away, layering colour upon colour to reveal the final image.
