Ian Phillips Taking Stock 2002 - 2016

Ian Phillips has been producing linocuts of the Welsh landscape for the last fifteen years. Along the way there have been notable events which have led to distinct developments in his work. Walking Long Distance Footpaths, a Residency in Australia and joining a woodcut collaboration have all left distinct impression on Ian’s work and working practice. Ian thought it would be very useful to look back at his prints and show the developments from his early work to the present day. By Taking Stock he can decide on its future.
