St Jude’s return to Town House in Spitalfields for their latest St Jude’s In The City event.
Nature Table explores the recent work of Angie Lewin and Emily Sutton, two prolific artists and designers who work in a variety of mediums as their response to the natural world. Both Angie and Emily spend much of their time on location, recording the flora and landscapes that inspire them and collecting their ‘nature table’ material to be used back in the studio. The exhibition features a selection of limited edition prints by both artists alongside unique collages by Angie and watercolours by Emily.
As part of this years Shoreditch Design Triangle, the event also sees the launch of new fabrics and wallpapers by both artists, adding to the growing range of artist-designed fabrics that St Jude’s have been producing since 2005.
Angie Lewin studied BA (Hons) Fine Art Printmaking at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, followed by a year’s postgraduate printmaking at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts.
Angie creates limited edition linocut, wood engraving, lithograph and screen prints – inspired by skeletal plant forms seen against the sea and sky of North Norfolk and the Scottish Highlands. She is a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Print Makers and of The Society of Wood Engravers.
In addition to her printmaking and fabric design for St. Jude’s, Angie has also designed fabric for Liberty and has illustrated for Penguin, Conran Octopus, Virago and Faber & Faber.
Emily Sutton is an artist based in York. She is the illustrator of over ten picture books for children and exhibits her drawings, watercolours and prints throughout the UK. Her work is inspired by mid-century illustration, junk shop treasures and an eye for detail.
