This year's print for Aberystwyth Printmakers Print Collectors Club is Anfarwolion/ The Immortals', a 4-run lithograph by the artist Ruth Jen Evans. Based in Talybont, Aberystwyth. Ruth is a multimedia artist, whose works often incorporate monoprint, linocut, screenprinting, drawing and collage. She also makes work in ceramics, and her current exhibition at MOMA Wales (18 September - 13 November), incorporates film and animation. Printed in collaboration with Master Printer Paul Croft, Anfarwolion' has been drawn with lithographic crayon and tusche wash, and printed in four runs from plate and stone in a limited split-edition of just 30 impressions: 15 on Hahnemuhle and 15 on Rives Cream paper.


This print by Ruth is an attempt to create her own personal mythology and derives in part from some of the recent linocuts and ceramic creatures she has been making. Having been brought up in a close rural community, from early childhood Ruth has been immersed in a strong tradition of story telling, both factual and imaginary. As an artist she sees the images she creates as a continuation of this but through a visual medium rather than the spoken one. She is fascinated by folk tales and fairy tales and often references Welsh stories and folklore in her work.


Price include £10 postage and packing
