Robert Jackson exhibits his work on b gallery art directory around the world.
I am a Luton-based artist/printmaker working mainly with lino cut techniques. The subjects I am drawn to are abandoned buildings with a haunting character and architechural stonework.
I studied Foundation at Falmouth College of Arts, and Product Design at The University of Luton. I have since worked in the manufacturing sector as a CAD draughtsman and sheet metal worker.
Printmaking is a media that combines industrial principals with image-making and provides endless opportunities to experiment. Most of my prints are from carved lino blocks, using a reduction method that allows the layering of different colours by removing more lino between ink applications. This technique (sometimes called the 'suicide method') makes the edition limited to the initial batch as the first layers have been cut away. All prints are small batch and are limited edition unless marked 'open batch'.
This year I am using etching techniques when cutting the lino, and have brought block printing principals to metal plate etching. This quite unique development I call 'relief etching'.
