About Rosalind Forster
There are no upcoming events
I set up my printworkshop in 1973 with the acquisition of a large Albion press and developed my technique of linocutting. I use the reduction process where the block is gradually cut away after each colour creating complex and bold images of up to sixteen colours.My images are not exclusively floral still lifes but they are a constant theme in my work both as a painter and printmaker. Sometimes the image comes from a chance encounter but more often they are a careful arrangement of favourite objects such as jugs,lace and flowers. Light plays an important role particularly in my Greek work demonstrated in my series of sunlit Spetses doorways.I
I have exhibited widely both internationally and in Britain and my work is in many private and public collections.
I divide my time between my Greek island home where I now print and paint and Derbyshire. These two beautiful places offer me so much inspiration.
