SPOTLIGHT: Amanda Averillo

Continuing our exploration of Printmaking further afield outside of our gallery walls, today we are discussing the works of Amanda Averillo. Similar to our previous Printmaker, Stephen Robson, Averillo’s work looks into the realm of nature and landscapes.

Of her work, Averillo states: “I work mainly in Mono print, a printmaking technique that is painterly whereby the image is built up in layers of ink on acetate sheets, each one printed on top of the last until I feel that the image is completed. I aim to capture light, atmosphere and mood in my landscapes.”

Although less intense than Robson’s pieces at face value, Averillo’s works illustrate far more detailed scenes. By adding such detail she is removing the ambiguity of Robson’s prints and creating something that resembles more of a life-like daydream.
