Photopolymer etching on heavyweight Southbank 310 gsm paper
This new work features a hand-built theatre set framing a historical photograph of Henry Cyril Paget, the 5th Marquess of Anglesey (1875-1905). The composite was then exposed on to a hand cut arch shaped etching plate, each print is individually inked before going through the press. Henry Cyril Paget was an Edwardian peer, known for his love of glittering, lavish costumes and extravagant theatre performances. Paget converted his inherited family chapel into an ornate, 150 seat theatre, which he named the Gaiety, where he performed plays by Oscar Wilde – a bold move at the time since Wilde had been jailed for 'obscenity’. He earned the title of the Dancing Marquess after his Butterfly Dancing, where he would perform in a voluminous robe of transparent white silk that would be waved like wings. 10% of profits from this print will go to All Out Charity All Out campaign and fight for a world where NO ONE has to sacrifice their family, freedom, safety, or dignity because of who they are or who they love.

Rosie Emerson

Rosie Emerson is an award-winning contemporary artist from the UK, working almost exclusively on representing the female form. Emerson’s figures draw reference from archetypes old and new from Artemis to the modern day supermodel.

Inspired by her love of museums, architecture, theatre, silhouettes and shrines, she uses dramatic lighting, handmade costumes, set and prop making alongside printmaking and painting to create ethereal works on paper.

Her subjects range from well-known icons to models, actors, dancers, and friends, which she photographed in her studio she then uses numerous different print techniques. Her screenprints are delicately embellished with bronze powders and more unusual materials including charcoal powder, ash and sawdust. Her etchings are often delicately embossed with unusual materials. These textural prints shift the focus of printmaking from precision and replication to the creation of unique, hand-finished prints.

Artist in residence at Somerset House, London, and a previous judge to the national art open competition. Her previous exhibitions include the Solo exhibition ‘Sirens’ Hang Up Gallery, the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol and the Southbank Centre. A current finalist for the Young Masters Prize and shortlisted for the Rise Art Print Award. Previous commissions range from bespoke artworks for the newly refurbished bar at The Dorchester Hotel to Arts Council England, for whom she created a new Guinness World record by creating the world’s largest Cyanotype photograph.

Her work is widely collected and exhibited both in the UK and internationally, and has been featured in Creative Review, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Another Magazine, The Financial Times Magazine and The Sunday Times Style Magazine.
