Members Showcase: Phil Underwood - woodcuts - Sat 26 Jan 2019 -Mon 04 Mar 2019

Showcase Room. Open daily, 10am-5.30. Free

A special showcase of new woodcuts by Devon  Guild of Craftsmen Member, Phil Underwood.

The focus of this exhibition is ‘A Craftsman’s Journey’. As well as showcasing some of his wood engravings, Phil Underwood gives an insight into ‘the mind of an artist’ and how his creative practice has developed. Phil says:
''Artists are often seen as naturally gifted people who magically create work and never make mistakes. Over the last 40 years I’ve explored and used every type of medium and every time the process is the same. Have a go, make mistakes, learn from it and then have another go. To give you an insight into the realities of creative development I have mapped my wood engraving journey, to show how the work has progressed, the challenges and lessons learnt. The search for a better way of depicting something often means experimenting with a different medium and importing the skills from it. The new work on display explores scale and the use of colour, and how it affects the power of an image.''

All work is for sale.
