The group are creative printmakers who live, work and print in London and the South East, united by a love of print and connection to Ochre Print Studios in Guildford, Surrey.

The exhibition brings together a range of printing techniques and sources of inspiration into an impactful mix of literal and abstract; colour and black and white. The groups uses linocut, etching, screen printing and collagraph and are inspired by nature, history, architecture literature and social change.

George Cruikshank's 'The British Bee Hive’

Always get excited to see detailed Victorian satirical illustrations such as this etching George Cruikshank's 'The British Bee Hive’. It depicts social hierarchy in Victorian era. Human social structures are like bees.

I used to use blueprints to print architectural plans and I did like the smell and quality of it. This commission reminded me good old days.

Marshall

He had a most beautiful long nose and gentle droopy eyes. This is my first attempt at sculpture ever.

I have started making him when we lost him as I was desperately trying to remember him. It took me 6 month to complete in the end but time is a funny thing. I never thought I could get over the grief and I still miss him but managed to move on as I finished this piece.

Also because I believe Rainbow Bridge. I know he is now able to run faster than ever.



Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends
so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor.
Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again,
just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing;
they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes
when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.
His bright eyes are intent.
His eager body quivers.
Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass,
his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet,
you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.

The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head,
and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet,
so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
