Gunning press printmakers of the week- Linda Nevill

Her drypoint print ‘From here to there’ is held in the Printmakers’ Council archives and it was chosen to appear on the artuk.org site’s database for UK public art collections.  

In 2018 an etching was on show at the Mall Galleries, London as a shortlisted artist for Artist and Illustrator Artist of the Year Award.

Linda is an elected Member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) . She is also a member of Birmingham Art Circle and Wolverhampton Society of Artists.  She regularly exhibits at the RBSA and further afield.

Why did you choose to purchase a Gunning Etching press?

“Dave Gunning was my first printmaking tutor in the late 1980s/early 1990s.  I took an evening etching class and loved it.  I had a theoretical knowledge of etching and other  printmaking processes from taking a degree in the History of Art at Edinburgh University and having the opportunity to engage with the processes that Rembrandt had used was very exciting.”

“This led to me buying a Gunning Etching press and to taking a degree in Printmaking.  I’ve had my Gunning press for so long that I can’t remember when I bought it!  It has served me very well over the years.”'Cottages' by Linda Nevill

What’s your favourite feature on the Gunning Etching press?

“A couple of years ago I replaced the press’s star wheel with a large wheel, which I love.  The registration bed is also very useful.  It is more accurate than my old hand drawn notations and has saved me a great deal of time.”

How would you describe your work?

Screenshot 2022 10 14 at 15.06.09“My work focusses mainly on landscape and I most frequently use etching and collagraph at the moment.  I try to capture the atmosphere and excitement of the place, the play of light and texture.  I have used and taught many other processes and have just started to do some lino printing again.”

Does your Gunning etching press have a nickname?
