Artist Janet Brooke is a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers and she has exhibited internationally. Her series titled ’36 views of Canary Wharf’ is widely acclaimed and a full set of this series is owned by the Museum of London as part of their permanent collection.
Her series of London churches includes 24 Wren Churches and two fine Hawksmoor Churches. The newest additions added May 2014 include St. Michael Cornhill, St. James’s Piccadilly and St. Clement Danes.
She says about her series of Wren Churches “The reason I started doing the churches was because I was having an exhibition in a lawyers office in Temple and I thought it would be good to do a couple of prints of this area and St. Brides stood out. So I did that to start and got hooked. Then looked to other Wren churches and it grew. There are several Wren churches remaining that I have yet to do. And might do other churches in the city because I like the environment down narrow streets and passages.”
At Orso Major we have a selection of her linocut prints inspired by the Japanese style of printmaking. The images include Canary Wharf, The Gherkin and City Churches.
The complex screen prints by Janet Brooke are being shown as part of the exhibition The Way We Were that documents the East London decaying landscape during the period 1985-2000. The exhibition opens Tuesday 18th November 2014
