Situated within the Northern European Landscape Tradition, Anna Harley’s is influenced by her nomadic childhood and Scandinavian background. The prints are an exploration of emotional and psychological states through the use of semi-abstracted images; often close-ups of the landscape taken from drawings and photographs of her city it’s surrounding countryside.
Combining a variety of media with traditional and contemporary print processes, including screen print, woodcut, laser and digital photography, Harley enjoys building images through layers of texture and silhouette. Continuing her fascination with the direct exposure of woven cloth on to the screenprint mesh, she experiments with double screen exposures, to add texture sourced from digital photographs, found objects, fabric and wood grain.
Harley has an MA in Printmaking from the University of the West of England and is a member of Spike Print Studio in Bristol.
