by Josephine Birch.

This image was made directly from Josephine's sketchbook drawings in Manhattan last winter. The buzzy grainy and colloquial nature of risograph speaks of the visual language of New York.

Size: 16 x 26 cm.
Edition of 10, numbered and signed.

Josephine has always been drawn to narrative and is passionate about drawing: working primarily on location, Josephine responds to the world directly around her. On the strength of her drawings Jo was awarded the Anglia Trust Travel scholarship to draw traditional British Crafts people and their landscapes and produce a book of the work. By allowing the changing weather and uncontrollable factors of working outdoors to influence the direction of the work the images take on the character of the place. Works begun outdoors are completed in situ; using sheets of paper taped together, Jo can fold up parts of the drawing and work on smaller sections. This allows her to work through wind and rain, in tough locations. These works inform her print and picture books placing the work firmly in the natural world and allowing memory and a ‘sense of place’ to influence the direction of the work.
