Win An Angie Lewin Screenprint
Angie Lewin creates limited edition linocut, wood engraving, lithograph and screen prints – inspired by skeletal plant forms seen against the sea and sky of North Norfolk and the Scottish Highlands and is a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, the Royal Watercolour Society, the Society of Wood Engravers and the Art Workers' Guild.
In 2005 Angie and Simon Lewin founded St Jude’s, collaborating with an eclectic group of artists to create and print beautiful fabrics and wallpapers. The idea behind the company was born when a collector of Angie’s limited edition prints mentioned that her work might translate well onto printed fabric. Starting with the simple aim of producing two of Angie’s designs St Jude’s has become a small but thriving business working with a number of artists including Mark Hearld, Ed Kluz and Emily Sutton. In addition to her limited edition printmaking and fabric design for St. Jude's, Angie has also designed fabric for Liberty and has illustrated for Penguin, Conran Octopus, Virago and Faber & Faber.
We have a signed, limited edition print by Angie Lewin to give away to one lucky reader, worth £295. The print Nature Study, Late Summer was originally commissioned by Pallant House Gallery to celebrate their exhibition of underappreciated modernist poet and artist David Jones. As Angie explains, ‘I was particularly influenced by David Jones' Flora in Calix-Light (1950) and Briar Cup (1932). On recent visits to Kettle's Yard, I focused on the collections of natural objects such as pale grey/brown feathers scattered upon a shallow glass dish, a small glass jug of asters beside a twist of seaweed stem and Jim Ede's pebble spiral on a simple wooden table’. Angie is known for her linocut, wood engraving, and screen prints which often depict plant forms seen against the sea and sky. The screenprint is unmounted, 67x47cm.
