Yorkshire Coast & Sea, Denise Burden

We’re really pleased to announce a late entry to our Yorkshire Coast & Sea exhibition, in the form of the hand-printed linocuts and collages of Denise Burden.

Denise originally hales from Bradford where she studied art before gaining a First Class (Hons) Degree from the Norwich School of Art. Luckily for us Denise now lives in the neighbouring dale of Wensleydale, taking inspiration from the stunning landscape around her.

Whether in colour, or simple black and white, Denise’s hand-printed linocuts are wonderful, timeless examples of this form of printmaking, to me reminiscent of the advertising posters of the 1920’s and 1930’s, the golden age of railway and airline travel.

As a local artist we plan to showcase Denise’s landscapes in our gallery. More on this soon …
