Victoria creates lino cut prints from initial observational sketches of people, nature and buildings in places she visits. Travelling by bike is Victoria’s favourite way to explore, finding her own way around and noticing the everyday life and character of a place. Her drawings from life are then translated onto lino to create stamps that through playful compositions start to suggest narratives and mapping. Victoria enjoys the immediacy of printing lino by hand making the prints come to life one stamp at a time.
Specialising in etching, Jemma records and documents transient states of decaying architectural forms containing an historic significance. She invites the viewer to slow down and reflect upon the degeneration of urban landscapes and to experience the city as a living museum.
