Artist Statement & CV

Kerry Day
STATEMENT

Originally from London, I trained as a ceramicist at Bath Spa University and now live and work in Bristol. I completed an MA in Mutli Disciplinary Printmaking at the University of the West of England in 2011 and am now based in my studio at Pennywell Studios, Bristol.
My current body of work is about the plants that I share my home and studio with. I am drawn to their architectural shapes and contours. The wide range of leaf colour and pattern in these cacti, succulents and leafy plants allow me to develop layers of texture and tone within the forms. I use a mixture of reduction lino print and mono print (using the rollers like paint brushes) to produce variable edition prints and the block printing method to produce bold and colourful textiles.
