Bill Jacklin RA discusses his graphic art over the last 50 years with writer and artist Nancy Campbell, exploring the dynamic tension between abstraction and representation ever present in his work.

Bill Jacklin initially trained as a graphic artist at Walthamstow School of Art before studying painting at the Royal College of Art. Although concentrating on painting from the mid-1970s, Jacklin is regularly drawn back to printmaking, often challenging himself with new techniques such as aquatint, as well as pushing the boundaries of the expressive potential of his monotypes. In 1985 Jacklin moved to New York and found not just a city but a subject, capturing the rhythm of life in and around New York.

Bill Jacklin RA: The Graphic Work 1961 – 2016 is the first ever retrospective survey exhibition of his graphic work. The display includes his seminal 1977 Anemones suite of etchings which encompass his interest in both figurative and abstraction.

The exhibition coincides with the publication of a monograph, Bill Jacklin: Graphics published by RA Publications in May 2016. A book signing will follow this event.

Doors open at 2.30pm. Unclaimed seats will be released to those waiting for returns at 2.55pm. No admittance will be granted after 3pm.
