Theatre exhibition puts coastal art on the right lines

South Bay from the Spa by Ian Mitchell.
Limited edition prints of Yorkshire coast landscapes and seascapes go on display at Scarborough's Stephen Joseph Theatre from today (Wednesday 8 June) until Saturday 23 July. Landscape Lines features the work of artist Ian Mitchell in the theatre Gallery.

Ian said: “My approach to printmaking combines an interest in landscape, design, logos and symbols. As a reductive artist in pursuit of a minimal outcome I use a mixture of digital, litho, collage and commercial materials.

“My unique delineation of the landscape is based on a stripped-down reality, referencing early travel posters and drawing on the early twentieth century design aesthetic.

“Working digitally, I strip away the topographical, stylising the landscape to create a logo-type symbol of an actual place.”
