Hilary Dalke

GHOST in the INK is the first exhibition of a series of monotypes and artworks in which Hilary Dalke revives and re-works an avant-garde approach to the 19th century scientific mode of nature printing.

These fragile images capture moments in time, revealing a lost presence of leaf forms and more, printed from residues on an inked platen.

The prints, made throughout a year of changes, are of leaves from a special Paulownia tree. Hilary Dalke’s work has recorded the life of a tree’s seasons - the periods of growth, from decay to rebirth. Also on display are installations of the inked, preserved leaves.

To accompany the exhibition there will be an artist’s talk on Saturday 26 March 2.30pm. All welcome. Just turn up.
