  • Julian Meredith

    Julian Meredith is a printmaker working mainly in woodcut as well as relief printing, creating images taken from large planks of wood and from objects which are found in the landscape in which he works; this could be from animals, feathers, fish etc. A proportion of Julian’s work is also site specific, being constructed or drawn directly on the landscape – fish, cetaceans and more ambiguous images, hundreds of feet long, some permanent and some drawn in sand and snow.

    I have always had a deep respect for people who live and work in close connection with the natural world. My own work is an extension of my practical knowledge of aspects of the wild. For years I drew flowers, but it wasn’t until I started keeping bees that I began to understand them.
    I gathered branches from dead elms and began making constructions, twenty feet or so across, and increasingly large prints. The printmaking process impregnates the wood with pigment and paraffin, giving it an almost fossil-like quality.

    The prints that I take from the blocks have a light, airy quality, the opposite to the nature of the wood itself. As the printed paper comes up off the block it’s a bit like the spirit of the fossilized wood.

    Northern Print has had the pleasure of working with Julian on several occasions over the last 25 years; the last time being in 2009 as part of International Print Biennale, when Julian did a residency in the Great Hall at Discovery Museum in Newcastle, gradually printing a life-sized woodcut of a whale!

    Julian has shown his work nationally and internationally including in the UK, Spain and Japan. His work has won numerous awards and is held in many collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum; Natural History Museum, London and Cartwright Hall, Bradford.
