Heart Of The Earth – Rebecca Vincent – Limited Edition

Born in Lancashire, Rebecca Vincent studied Fine Art at Oxford and Newcastle Universities before becoming a professional artist specializing in printmaking. Rebecca’s landscape etchings have deep, glowing colours and delicate textures. She uses a wide range of hand-printed marks to convey the patterns of fields, hills and hedgerows. In Rebecca’s hands, the landscape undergoes a stylization process that clarifies the pattern of fields and hedgerows into an almost abstract pattern of intersecting shapes. Add in strong colours and a variety of interesting textures and you have her distinctive landscape style.

Rebecca’s etchings are printed from one or two copper plates that have been bitten with ferric chloride. She uses various acrylic resist fluids that protect areas of the plate from the chemical reaction. There are many different techniques

used to create the lines, textures and tones and the plate is bitten many times to create all the indentations. Once etching is complete the plate is inked by hand using up to 16 different colours. These are rubbed in and wiped back very carefully each time the plate is printed. The ink is transferred onto damp paper through an etching press (a bit like a mangle) under high pressure. A number of near identical prints can be made (called an edition) but each one is printed separately by hand.

“Etching is an amazing medium that offers so many mark-making possibilities. I can interpret the landscape using an appropriate technique for each area: fine lines for the winter trees, even textures for the farmed land and soft wash-like marks for the sky. The etched marks have a slightly raised quality when printed and give the precision and depth of tone that I’m looking for.”

There’s one more thread to Rebecca’s  work and that comes from the world of textiles – wonderful patterns and textures that were part of my early life. There’s no fabric or sewing in my work although there might seem to be on first glance. I am capturing  impressions from textured wallpapers and fabrics in both the etchings and monotypes (one-off prints). I use a wide range of hand-printed patterns to convey the patchwork of fields, hills and hedgerows. To bring my printmaking to a wider audience, I now offer a range of high quality giclee prints and greetings cards as well as the hand-made prints.
