Aspects of Print, Roy Bizley
Aspects of Print Work by Roy Bizley LPW Exhibition Space & The Print Room at LCB Depot 10th February – 12th May 2018
Leicester Print Workshop is delighted to present a selection of prints by the late Leicester artist Roy Bizley. These works have been selected from a collection of prints produced throughout his career, which have been recently donated to LPW by the artist’s family.
The exhibition, staged over two venues, brings together two aspects of Bizley’s work, the Icelandic landscapes that inspired so much of his work, and a series of prints which explore his process of creating a print. The exhibition follows on from a successful 2016 show of Bizley’s political woodcuts at Leicester Print Workshop.
