The mezzotint process is a 17th Century intaglio method of printmaking achieving an exquisite soft tonal range by abrading the surface of a copper plate with a toothed rocker and burnishing areas of light by smoothing the surface where the ink will not be held. Transformed by the hand inking of the plate with sticky ink and the transference by the etching press onto the paper.

Rabley Gallery is at the heart of farmland, brimmed by woods, fields, river and downland in and area of outstanding natural beauty (ANOB)  on the Marlborough Downs. It is habitiat to over 300 species of moths– a ‘tip of the iceberg’  list that has spurred my interest, leading to us inviting Sarah Gillespie to present these stunning Wessex moth prints whose names read like incidental poetry ‘Lime-speck Pug, White Plume, Light Emerald, Black Arches, Small Phoenix, Yellow-tail, Common Quaker’
