Rabley Gallery is launching new publications at the IFPDA Fair 2021 Fall Edition. This features Emma Stibbon RA, Sarah Gillespie and Katherine Jones, whose works convey both fearlessness and a delicacy in their interpretation of our changing Earth. The world as we know it is in flux, reshaping according to the impacts of nature, social progression, and global crises.

Emma Stibbon RA was artist in residence for the Grand Canyon National Parks in 2019 and Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park in 2016. Her new intaglio and hand coloured prints include ’Salt Flats, Badwater Basin’, ‘Road to Death Valley’ and ‘Boom and Bust’. Each depicts landscapes and environments undergoing dynamic change. A British Royal Academician, she often works in collaboration with international scientists to research and explore her subjects.

“Encountering the American mid-west put a perspective on my existence and remains imprinted on my memory.” - Emma Stibbon RA

Sarah Gillespie makes mezzotint prints, an old, slow and painstaking method that produces unique velvet blacks and soft tones. Her work encourages us to refocus our gaze toward the everyday and the overlooked; moths, blackbirds and winter-suns. Her new publication, ‘The Same Blackbird’ has been made in collaboration with Alice Oswald, Oxford professor, poet and gardener to celebrate the quatercentenary of the Oxford Botanic Garden.

Katherine Jones uses organic structures and natural objects like stones and flowers to begin to question perceptions of safety and danger. Recent times have made her reflect on the earth’s natural ability for growth and renewal in the face of adversity. These new prints are part of a larger current exhibition ‘The Iron in the Earth’. Her complex and layered collagraph prints include subtle colorations, textured surfaces and expressive gestures.

These three artist’s distinct voices immerse the viewer in a descriptive world of infinite horizons, elegant minutia and flourishing birdsong. Their work comes together to encapsulate ‘A Fragile World.’
