The Illustrator’s Art

Prints by Andrzej Krauze, Lynn Hatzius and Matthew Pagett
Craft Case – Books by Kaho Kojima and Chisato Tambayashi

The Illustrator’s Art celebrates the work of three very different artists: Andrzej Krauze, Lynn Hatzius and Matthew Pagett, who all work as fine artists and illustrators and explores the influence of narrative and figurative expression transferred from illustration to fine art through printmaking.

Lynn Hatzius experiments with a combination of collage and printmaking, her recent work, inspired by the anonymity of found material, alters the physicality of her portrait subjects by adding images of nature, to suggest loss, growth and completeness.

RCA graduate Matthew Pagett received the 2012 New Graduate Award at londonprintstudio. Using new techniques and processes at the studio, he has been evaluating new ideas through printmaking.

Andrzej Krauze, a leading political cartoonist in his native Poland, became known for his extraordinary illustrations in the Guardian newspaper. A master of producing wry, ironic, sometimes scary images, the bold paper cut images in this exhibition represent a radical departure from his normal line drawing style.
