Liz Bennett has lived and worked in London all her life, and her prints celebrate familiar South London streets, favourite corners of buildings and museums, and the changing Thames skyline. Liz's most recent work explores the shapes and mysterious presence of the 'dolphins' on the River Thames- the moorings and inlets of the river where boats are held. The prints demonstrate the extraordinary range of marks possible in linocut- and the works in this exhibition show how Liz has developed a personal language to describe the sky, the pattern of bricks of a Brixton pub wall, or ripples on the Thames. Asked how and where she chooses what to draw, Liz explains that her inspiration comes from the familiar, that it must be something she knows well. To the viewer, her slightly unusual viewpoints present these places and spaces in new ways. The Dolphin and Moorings series include unique hand- coloured elements making each print completely different.
