Linda Uhlemann

Statement

Through working as a contemporary jeweller for many years my print work has evolved using many of the same techniques. Drawing on the imagery of rivers, mountains, rocks and shorelines, the plates are scored and marked like weathered and eroded landscapes, then printed in colour layers, giving them a rich luminosity and strength. My work is a means by which I express my communication with our world.
