British Wildlife - Owl by Fiona Willis

the elegant fowl - a printmakers' parliament of owls By Alan Marshall

The Elegant Fowl is the successor to last year’s The Artful Hare. 96 British printmakers turn their linocutting, wood engraving, screen printing, etching and collagraphy skills into 265 images of owls. Once again, the variety of work is impressive – both in terms of technique and interpretation. Robert Gillmor, Matt Underwood, Carry Akroyd, Greg Poole, Rob Barnes, Mike Smith, Linda Richardson, Thelma Sykes, Tor Hildyard, Richard Bawden and Hester Cox are some of the contributors. The introduction looks at folklore and the natural history of owls, their appearance in art through the ages and their appeal to modern printmakers. All major techniques are described and discussed, while the artists provide their own anecdotes and insights into the world of owls
