Margaret Sellars RE
The innovatory prints of Margaret Sellars hover between the recognisably real and the abstract. She concentrates on often overlooked shapes and details from natural and man-made structures, transforming and changing their scale to discover new and unexpected forms.
Her etchings are often combined with monoprint, using multiple plates, or re-arranging and over-printing. She does not produce large editions, instead concentrating mainly on unique prints and thematically-related series. Margaret’s training in painting and textile design at Wallasey art school, Birmingham University/ College of Art, and Goldsmiths College contributes to the freedom of treatment in her prints. She works at Artichoke Printmaking Workshop, exhibits widely in London ( in particular at Bankside Gallery) and the UK generally, winning a number of awards. Her prints are held in public and private collections, including the V&A and the Ashmolean. Margaret is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and is also a member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and the Printmakers Council.
