About the Artists
Charlie Horry is a Northamptonshire based printmaker. Having taken a sabbatical year from teaching she studied on the MA Fine Art programme at the University of Northampton. Horry’s work stems from the ideas of The Ruin and Palimpsest. She is interested in the layers that are created both on the surface of the plate and in the final prints. She has been mostly working in soft ground etching techniques but also uses Collagraph and Lino print techniques.
Kaiya Khatri’s practice has been rooted in exploring different methods of preserving impressions of nature in print. The key themes of her practice were embedded in highlighting the delicacy, intricacy and detail of flowers. Through in-depth exploration of various print mediums, she aimed to preserve and suspend in time the beauty of flowers. There has been an evolution in her practice that has come to focus on the beauty, form and sublimity in nature. In the beginning Khatri wanted to continue pursuing the ways nature could be perfectly captured in print but as her work evolved she began to explore the ambiguity within the work and the way it could be interpreted by a viewer.
