Ivy Smith

I am a figurative painter-printmaker. My usual print methods are linocut and etching.

My main area of interest is the figure. I am interested in people’s particularity and humanity, and in the dynamic relationships  made by unconsidered movements and interactions, and the expressive possibilities these lead to in, for instance, the positions of head and hands. My concerns are also strongly abstract, valuing an underlying  geometry of composition, and also defined shape, and rich colour.

My prints and paintings relate closely, as I will explore an idea through both media, and I feel that over the years the ways of working have influenced each other quite strongly. My prints are not the paintings in a different form, but a new idea tried in a different medium.
