The Hepworth Wakefield

I've been a little secretive recently, about a new commission that I've been working on. It is one I'm rather excited about, and pretty chuffed to have been asked to do. If anyone has noticed that I've rather resembled a mole of late, then this is why. It has been keeping me very busy!

The Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield asked me to produce a linocut of the gallery, and I was very glad to oblige. It is a pretty amazing building, both outside and in (it houses a stellar collection of modern art), so I was more than a little nervous!

However, once I'd got started, it was a lot of fun. The print is a hand-pressed two-colour linocut, measures 21x30cm, and is on 42x58cm paper. It will be available to buy from the gallery and their online shop from December (price tbc).


  1. Great print James.
    I hope to get there for a visit before too long.

  2. Congratulations on your commission - it looks great and I love the Hepworth Wakefield.
