Eileen Cooper RA presents a diverse collection of works for sale by Royal Academicians including Grayson Perry, Eileen Cooper, Vanessa Jackson and Stephen Chambers alongside a number of invited artists.

Surface Cutting, the latest exhibition from Art Sales, curated by Eileen Cooper RA, celebrates the medium of wood and linocut, known as block printing. Works included in the exhibition have been made featuring a variety of block printing techniques including hand-printed traditional Japanese woodblock to laser cutting. The results are intriguing, and range from graphic, bold imagery through to intensely detailed and intimate artworks.

Artists on show include Eileen Cooper RA, Grayson Perry RA, Stephen Chambers RA, Vanessa Jackson RA, Michael Sandle RA, Martin Groß, Sara Lee, Declan Jenkins, Nana Shiomi, Pru Ainslie, Katsutoshi Yuasa, Pine Feroda, Isabel Rock, Hen Coleman, Mark Hampson, Jonathan Ashworth and Tom Hammick.

A selection of these works will be showcased in an exhibition in the Keeper’s House until 20 February 2016. The works are also available to buy online through Art Sales at the RA.
