West Yorkshire Print Workshop (WYPW) is showcasing a new collection of art as part of the Tracing Memory exhibition.

Artists Victoria Browne, Susan Corke, Theodore Ereira-Guyer and Katherine Jones will have work on display at the Huddersfield Road venue in Mirfield until Saturday 8 July.

Curated by Katherine Jones in partnership with WYPW, the show brings together the four established artists, linked by their printmaking practice and their association with the Art Academy in South London.

Victoria Browne’s topiary-inspired motifs are ‘hand-carved structural formations, emulating th pruning and shaping of our own personal constructs’ drawing on a consideration of man’s desire to control nature.

Theodore Ereira-Guyer’s prints draw on a wide range of sources to make work which poses questions about how we understand things we cannot experience, or share beliefs of what is possible to know or not know.

Susan Corke’s images engage with technology and mechanical reproduction of a different kind – of photography and etching. Among her interests are science and story telling.

As such, her prints present a ‘real space’ captured, experienced in the real world.

Katherine Jones makes richly-textured, painterly prints combining collagraph, block-print and etching.

The relatively simple processes she employs (for example, cardboard stencils) belie the sophistication and emotional depth of the work.
