Q&A – SOPHIE LAYTON, PRINTMAKING ARTIST
'We’ve always been fascinated by print here at The Holborn, after all we began this journey many years ago with the dream of running a print magazine. From the smell of ink & paper combined (who doesn’t sniff books & magazines, right?) to the texture and how the ink sits on the paper there is a lot to be fascinated by. So it was a joy when an email landed in our inbox telling us all about Sophie Layton and her work with paper & ink.'
"London-based artist and professional printmaker Sophie Layton has recently announced her second major solo show with Eames Fine Artand this time we will be treated to a wonderful selection of her work spanning Carborundum prints, photo-etched imagery, printed transfers and monotypes. For this upcoming exhibition in spring 2016, You can expect to see Layton’s ventures across diverse mediums. We promise this is a must-see for anyone who wishes to see work that evokes the sense of the uncanny and creatively explores the juxtaposition of light and dark."
