After seeing Anna Tosney’s work displayed at the North Light Gallery, West Yorkshire, England, I was completely in awe over these simple yet beautiful prints! The bold line accompanied by a wash of vivid tone makes these prints come to life and gives a sense of character.
Tosney, a graduate at the University of Wales, institute, Cardiff, applies her knowledge learned from a Ba (hons) fine art (Printmaking) course which is clearly evident throughout her work. She takes inspiration from the Yorkshire Dales making the subjects of her work often relate to farming and landscape. Tosney applies a unique technique when creating her prints, using both mono-print and drypoint which allows the ink to form strong lines yet still keep the bold tones surrounding the imagery.
