Sarah Harris’s latest collection of screen prints celebrate the diversity of her home region, paying particular attention to the relationship between man-made and natural elements that are entwined into our landscapes.

Working from her original pen drawings, each print is a limited edition and hand printed by the artist in her Leeds studio. The work is often mistaken for other printing processes due to the use of fine line that is not often associated with the medium of screen printing. Harris has developed an approach which utilises this method to create contrast and depth alongside an often limited colour palette to evoke feelings which are both modernistic and nostalgic.

Harris has had her work shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition twice, won an award at the New Lights art prize, People’s Choice at the Flourish Award for excellence in printmaking and in 2017 she had a popular solo exhibition in the Cellar Gallery at Cartwright Hall.
