In this series, Pilkington uses the process of etching to transform a group of origami animals and toys into sculptural propositions. The rich, painterly effects are achieved by using the á la poupée technique, whereby different colours are applied and hand wiped on each plate.
Three other prints form the series including Unicorn, Bright Birds and Origami Goat are also available.
The RA Editions programme generates valuable revenue for the RA and in particular the RA Schools.
Fantastical, unsettling, surreal, dramatic – these are the impressions Cathie Pilkington RA makes on the viewer with an etching that’s similar in tone to her painted bronze sculpture.
It’s part of a suite of four prints, along with Unicorn, Bright Birds, and Origami Goat. Striking and powerful are Pilkington’s darkened background and exaggerated shadow.
Pilkington graduated with an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art in 1997 and was awarded the Cheltenham Fine Art Fellowship in 1998. Her multiple award-winning work is exhibited internationally.
All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the RA Schools.
