Overview

Emily Crookshank is a painter and printmaker based in London. Since graduating from The Glasgow School of Art in 2011 her work has been exhibited widely across the UK, including in the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art 2016.

Emily Crookshank spends chunks of her time in the wilder landscapes of Britain and like the notable printmaker Norman Ackroyd she shares a passion for Scotland, Mull and the Hebrides – describing the rhyme of the landscape, firstly, with drawing – the most spontaneous form of expression: the drawings are memento of her engagement with nature.

 

The etching process is a disciplined art with many restrictions. Once mastered, the artist can conjure very subtle shades of expression. Working in a series is the printmakers norm – each print is born from the one preceding it and like a line of footprints in the sand, every print is slightly different.

 

Emily’s prints are not likenesses but abstract forms born from the printing plate, although her black inked densities evoke feelings of time passing time – the inner light of the land.
