Michael Atkin - Impressions

Michael is an artist-printmaker who creates limited edition etchings, linoprints, fine art books and wood engravings at his home based workshop and ‘private press’ BrackenPress, which he established in 1974. Images are figurative, narrative and located in the Yorkshire countryside.It is an imagined or remembered place. In the more vigorous of these country idylls; opposites are composed, reconciled: shadow and sunlight,water and woodland, valley and hill-side.I have a blurred map of connections, of things seen, things read, places visited and other things, which once amalgamated form the imagery I conceive and commit to print. The landscape is imagined as an assemblage pieced together with vivid elements.
