If you’ve been getting my Instagram posts at @sinclairashmanprintmaker, you will have seen my updates on a recent gallery/exhibition venture. It’s called The Five.

We are five artists with a common ethos and ideas around innovative ways to show our work, both inside and outside of the traditional picture frame.

Alongside myself, The Five comprises:

Francheska Pattisson, ceramicist/printmaker
Consuelo Simpson, object-artist
Sarah Mander, printmaker
Kay Senior, printmaker

We currently have an exhibition running in Portsmouth at the lovely Jack House Gallery (details below), until and including 1 June.

The show includes folded sculptures, metallic reliefs, printmaking, ceramic bowls and vessels, unprinted and printed objects and forms.
