Norman Ackroyd at Eames Fine Art

Norman Ackroyd RA has randomly selected etchings from his journeys around the British Isles from the last 30 years.

60 of these etchings have been chosen from the many hundreds made by Ackroyd since he first began observing the British coastline in this haunting and mesmerising technique.

The exhibition gives us a taste of the beguiling landscapes which Ackroyd demonstrates such a passion for.
Norman Ackroyd is one of Britain’s foremost landscape artists, with a breadth of work which has gained him an international reputation, a Senior Fellowship of the Royal College of Art and a CBE for Services to Engraving and Printing.

His works hang in the Tate, New York’s MoMA and the British Embassy in Moscow. Norman was also one of this year’s RA Summer Exhibition coordinators.

He is one of the few artists who manages to enjoy a well regarded and respected position within the art world, and yet is still accessible to collectors at all levels of experience and budgets.

As a master printmaker, he follows a great tradition of artists who relished the fact that producing an edition of original works on paper was a way for many people to enjoy excellent and original works of art on their own walls, not just in a gallery.

This stunning exhibition is a great insight into Norman’s work with etchings that are 30 years old hanging alongside works made as recently as a few months ago.

The etchings displayed offer up the beauty and awesome spectacle of the British landscape, and makes it available to us all.
