  • Biography

    I enjoy woodland walks and countryside views, marvelling at the constant changes in light, weather and season. I get excited by interesting light and shadow and engaging colour palettes, then take pleasure in translating these scenic discoveries into linocuts. 

    I favour the 'reduction’ process, which involves cutting and printing each layer of colour from the same block of lino in order to build up an image. Mistakes cannot be rectified and the block is destroyed in the process. All prints must be created at once as there is no going back to an earlier cut of the block.

    As a teenager I visited a lot of art galleries on school trips. The impressionist and post-impressionist paintings were always my favourite. I greatly admired the use and application of colour. The paintings I viewed then made a huge impact on me and those experiences still influence my artistic style today.

    In 2011 and 2012 I was delighted to have my work selected for to Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and in 2014 I had linocuts chosen for the Society of Women Artists Exhibition at the Mall Galleries.

    Event: #50prints2017 Solo Exhibition

    Dates: March 10, 2018 - March 25, 2018

    Venue: The Stables at Claydon Estate, The Stables, The Courtyard, Claydon Estate, Middle Claydon, Buckinghamshire MK18 2EX

    At the beginning of 2017, linocut artist Alexandra Buckle challenged herself to create 50 prints throughout the year. A few months into the year the decision was taken to plan a Solo Exhibition, early in 2018, of the entire year's work. Some of this year's prints have proved very popular so it has been necessary to hold a few back for the exhibition. This will likely be the only chance to see the entire collection together!

    You can check Alexandra's progress with her challenge on social media using the hashtag #50prints2017 or by visiting the blog on her website.
