ABOUT

B. 1987. Lives and works in Wiltshire, UK.

Amy-Jane Blackhall is an artist and printmaker. Her work emerges from her fascination with the concept of interconnectedness, through the physical and spiritual act of making, particularly the repetitive nature of print.

Underlying structures are central to her imagery; derived from sacred places, she frequently references archetypal symbols, Oriental art and Eastern ideologies. Recurring themes in her work reflect on how the universality has a strong aesthetic appeal transcending space and time, language and culture.

Current work continues to explore themes of her solo exhibition, Everyone Is A Moon, with an emphasis on the comfort in the cadence and repetition of ongoing cycles that both anchor and elude us.

In 2015 Blackhall established her own Fine Art print and editioning studio, INK on PAPER PRESS, based in Wiltshire, UK. The print studio spaces enable her to work with artists on a one-to-one basis to originate and edition prints, alongside developing her own art practice. INK on PAPER PRESS is currently the main print editioning studio for Royal Academician, Emma Stibbon. Recent editions also include ‘Finding Lines’ print for Ann Christopher RA Royal Academy published monograph.
