Susan Early & Jennifer Lane will present a series of etchings, woodcuts and lithographs exploring the border between land and sea.

Susan has focused on the south Dublin coast with keenly observed studies of lighthouses at Dun Laoghaire and Martello Towers at Seapoint and Sandycove. Her unpeopled etchings explore the man-made structures on a coastline as sentinels embedded into the natural landscape, contemplating our relationship to the sea. Her research has taken her around Ireland’s coast, and to the east & west Atlantic seaboard recording the marks and traces we leave on our shores. Her background in architecture is reflected in the representation, structure and style of these etchings, in particular Martello Tower no. 14, Seapoint and a detailed study of the Fastnet Lighthouse, an iconic and strategic landmark in the Atlantic Ocean.

Jennifer Lane’s works are evidence of her mastery of woodblock printing, through which she has visited the coast around Sutton with evocative pieces that capture the essence of the shoreline and its ever-changing moods. She overlays colour through a reductive woodcut process using the natural grain of the shina plywood to harmonise wonderfully with the outlines and movement to be found in land, sea and sky and has introduced a new carborundum layer to these prints.
