May brings more than spring flowers to WLM’s Virtual Gallery, which features the printworks of Linnane Armstrong and Meredith MacLeod.
Armstrong uses relief printmaking to express a unique view of the beauty she finds in nature. Detailed patterns adorn dramatic landscapes and natural elements in her linocut and woodcut prints inspired by Whidbey Island. She captures intense light and dark values, as well as patterns that transition between them in her work.
MacLeod uses non-toxic paints and hand-carved rubber stamps in her work to build layers of shapes and color, simulating a textile or wallpaper mono-print. Her subjects tend toward the feathered, tweeting variety and add a sense of joy to this colorful, geometric and delightful work.
