A Celebration of
7th March - 11th June 2023
The next exhibition at Lyme Regis Museum’s Rotunda Gallery will focus on cloudscape lino prints
by Exeter-based printmaker Steve Manning. Working out of his attic
studio with commanding views of sky and clouds, Steve is drawn to liminal places where sky and water merge and to ephemeral
cloudscapes over big landscapes. His aim is to deliver images with a
lightness of touch and a painterly quality reminiscent of
watercolours. This is achieved by thinning ink with extenders,
lightening with white, wiping ink on the block, deliberately
reducing the amount of ink applied with the roller and combining
press and hand finishing processes.
