After the long hot summer, Ann Norfield’s Overgrowth series of etchings show an overheating natural world, burgeoning with plant life in the rising humidity. Its dense population of hovering insects bring with them a malevolence suggestive of pestilence and dark times ahead….
Ann Norfield’s work revolves around inner city life, decay, loss and survival, using drawn and cut images in a variety of media. She has been working on schools programmes for the past twenty years and is a founder member of East London Printmakers, a cooperative studio for artist printmakers. Work is held in private collections and by University of Leicester, Museum of Fairy Tales and Grimm’s Museum, Germany.
