Jonathan Blackmore

Jonathan Blackmore Artist & Printmaker

I am a linocut printmaker, living in Wells, Somerset and in Devon. My work is inspired by the local medieval architecture and by natural landscapes.

I studied Fine Art at Somerset College of Arts & Technology (1979) and a BA Honours degree in Fine Art at Wolverhampton University (1982). I moved to Wells in 2000.

I often use the reduction method for my colour prints, cutting away more lino, from a single block, for each successive colour. I find lino an exciting medium, each cut is a commitment, the anticipation builds as each layer is revealed. Making my prints by hand creates slight variations, so that every print is unique.

I am a member of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen and my work can be seen at the Guild shop, at 23a Broad Street, Wells.

I sometimes run linocut workshops at the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen's gallery in Broad Street, Wells, as part of a programme of events run by experienced Guild members. Ask at the gallery for more details.
