Angela Harding is an established painter and printmaker who works from her rural studio in Wing, Rutland. Recurring inspirations are the changing seasons and the flora and fauna of the British countryside, from which her work expresses the mood and atmosphere of the landscape. Harding principally works in block print, combining vinyl or lino with layered coloured silkscreen, which gives a strong graphic emphasis to the work.

More Information

Her paintings often feature observational drawings of places visited such as North Yorkshire, Suffolk and Shropshire, and contain bird or animal motifs on dissolving multi-layers of colour. Harding also draws inspiration from words, describing herself as a ‘narrative illustrator’ as well as a fine artist. In recent years she has made regular contributions as an illustrator for Gardens Illustrated, BBC Countryfile and Country Living Magazine.
 
Flights of Memory is a collection of new paintings and prints inspired by British birds and animals in their natural landscapes. Harding spent some of her childhood in North Yorkshire and has revisited locations reminiscent of that time for this exhibition to produce works which are observational and also rely on a combination of imagination and memory. Harding’s delicate and intriguing style is further shown through her mainly British bird alphabet, exhibited for the first time at YSP. This features a series of 26 wood engravings that take joy in the shape, form and pattern of our British birds.

I have bought greetings cards of Angela Harding's designs - they are beautiful and very distinctive. Titania in Loughborough stocks them.

The clarity of Angela's art isn't drawn from the graphic style or colour alone .The choices she makes with regards a central figure at the forefront of each image takes you in towards a story. Her art is full of imagery taking you on a journey of ones own imagination. Angela has the ability to make you feel a part of something very special. DIANE DARBY on Angela Harding: Flights of Memory
Fantastic show such an inventive use of mark making in lino, so inspiring Zelda Eady on Angela Harding: Flights of Memory
