Jan Slater

I produce works on paper, mainly using printing techniques. Recently I have been creating collages using recycled and handprinted papers based upon landscapes.

After a career unrelated to art I was introduced to printmaking, I have no formal art training but have undertaken several short courses and a period at hotbed press in Salford to develop knowledge and skills related to printmaking.

I am influenced by landscape particularly moorlands, walls, stones and mosses I live among. I am also interested in the disappearing urban landscape of the city I remember from my childhood.

My work tries to capture the feelings locations invoke for me, rather than being representational images.

Recently i have been recycling prints and sketches to produce collaged landscapes. I have also been dying papers using natural vegetation and inks with the intention to use them to make small books and images. This will broaden the range of work i make using a greater combination of techniques and materials to produce varied mixed media pieces.
