Artist

Josephine Birch

Josephine is a Devon-based artist with an MA and BA from Cambridge School of Art and a Postgrad Scholarship from The Royal Drawing School. 

As a printmaker she pushes boundaries between drawing and print, combining traditional methods and working towards space-sensitive experimental works which envelop the viewer, like an overwhelming memory, an insistent reminder of the importance of the natural world and our complex engagement with it.

Josephine's Style

Working primarily on location, she responds to the world directly around her, allowing memory to feed into the process. Works begun outdoors are completed in situ, sometimes using sheets of paper taped together, she can fold up parts of the drawing and work on smaller sections. This allows her to work through wind and rain, in tough locations.

The works are both a direct response to the natural world and an inwardly reflective process. By allowing the changing weather and uncontrollable factors of drawing outdoors to influence the work, images take on the character and sense of place.

"Drawing on location allows all else to fall away, by engaging with the sounds and sensations of the natural world. It is a revolutionary act in the face of screen time and hyper connection; an act of honoring, of paying attention, a way to reconnect." - Josephine Birch

Drop 2 - Summer 2022

"This collection is inspired by new spring light after the long winter. The stillness of cool April evenings, the warmth of a lit window after spring showers  and the promise of hot sunshine in the coming months." - Josephine Birch, Looking Out

After The Rain

"The drawings and paintings in this collection were made on location in and around the South west, at Dartington Hall, and on the Hafod Estate, Wales. The drawings in turn inspire the prints which are made from memory on return to the studio. These landscapes encompass the wild and the managed, with edges of unkempt, reclaimed bramble and woodland, amongst gardens and greenhouses, between hedge and moor." - Josephine Birch, After The Rain
