Robin Bray-Hurren

Using relief printmaking and embroidery to explore structure at a range of scales, from the human skeleton to architecture and infrastructure, the makeup of the materials used by Robin Bray-Hurren is as important to the artist as what is depicted.

“I love the qualities of both lino and woodcut, and have recently started using them in combination so I can benefit from the natural grain of wood, and lino’s ability to hold crisp and detailed lines.”

In addition to direct relief print, the artist uses offset ghost printing from the roller which provides a degree of unpredictability to the finished print, open to discovery throughout the whole process.

“Through my work I hope to share some of my fascination with how we construct the world around us and how it is interlinked with our own physical form.”
