Big Skies, Distant Views

Steve Manning is an Exeter based printmaker working out of an attic studio that commands fine vistas of clouds and sky. The landscapes of Dorset and Devon have understandably become the subject of much of his work, including this exhibition.
“I am particularly interested in the cloudscape and it often informs the overall composition of the completed print,” says Steve. “For me the challenge is to render distant vistas and ethereal skies using a medium—multi-block and reduction printmaking—usually associated with bold blocks of colour. I achieve this by either lightening colours with white or thinning them with extender. The end results are prints that could be described as having a ‘painterly’ quality. I probably should be a watercolourist, but I love the combination of craft and fine art that printmaking offers.”
