Ann Norfield has created a series of unique prints: Outtakes. She drew up twelve copper plates based on discarded photos from her phone and etched them, inking and printing in different combinations.
In Outtakes people and places swap and shift. What difference does the context of each image make to the way people appear? Colours and settings suggest different memories…. Meanwhile, the artist’s Discard file is rematerialised in etched copper.
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.
