In her prints, Jean Ramsey uses traditional techniques of etching, mezzotint and monoprints. Many of the pieces in her Highgate Gallery show will be soft-ground etchings, a process that allows qualities of suggestion with the resulting images frequently unforeseen. Drawing underpins all her work; she focusses on how it can evolve into print form with its particular expressive marks. Her subject matter is personal and “close to home”. Recent images of ‘heads’ explore self portraiture as well as referencing natural landscape and ancient sculptures.
