The printmaking process: Monoprinting is a type of printmaking where the intention is to make unique prints that explore an image serially. A single print is created from a prepared design, drawn directly onto an inked up flat surface. A variety of different drawing implements and techniques are used to ensure that each monoprint has a unique quality.
Tate glossary definition for monoprint: A form of printmaking where the image can be made once only, unlike
most printmaking which allows for editions of multiple originals.
Sandie Henderson was born and grew up in Cumbria, where the dramatic beauty of Cumbria’s coast, fells and mountains no doubt nurtured her early appreciation of landscape and the natural environment.
Through sculpture, drawing and printmaking, Sandie aims to capture the inherent characteristics of the horse, particularly its essential power and dynamic energy whilst in motion. She looks for an elemental spirit of the wild that connects her horses to the landscape of their environment.
Sandie’s work is informed and authenticated by personal involvement with horses and an earlier career as a British Horse Society Riding Instructor. Close observation and study of equine physiology and ethology are important aspects of her art practice.Read more
Although her equestrian art work is essentially contemporary, its roots are very much grounded in antiquity. Major influences include Ancient Greek, Etruscan and Tang Dynasty Art. The classic 1766 publication, “The Anatomy of the Horse” by George Stubbs has been a particular source of inspiration. Further significant influences include Marino Marini and Elizabeth Frink.
Sandie’s work has been exhibited widely both in this country and abroad, and is held in various public and private collections.
