STELLA YARROW

I have been printmaking since 2016, specialising in lino print and lino etching. My prints reflect my passion for the natural environment, especially in London – I have been a local nature conservation volunteer for the last seven years. The two prints exhibited in the Artist’s Walk 2021 are from a series I have made about peregrine falcons. I am fascinated by how peregrine falcons successfully coexist with humans in London. The falcon takes on a symbolic meaning in some Indian traditions. The falcon soars above the preoccupations of this world, sees the bigger picture and the turning of the ages and allows our mind to take flight. Creating these two images of the ‘Third Eye’ helped to give me a sense of restoration and liberation during the turmoil and restrictions of the pandemic.

 

I live in Crouch End and make my original prints at the Art Academy, an independent art school in London Bridge. I make each print individually by hand using a traditional etching press. I was a student at the Art Academy between 2017-19 and have been a Print Associate there since 2018. I have exhibited locally and in central London. I am a member of Crouch End Open Studios and exhibit in their events.
