Pine Feroda is the collective name used by five British artists, who come together to create large-scale, dramatic woodblock prints.
Their first solo exhibition in London, Pine Feroda will present several major woodcuts inspired by the extraordinary coast of North Devon, with its rugged forms and brooding colours. The works draw upon close observation of the artists’ local beaches and headlands, the group often drawing within the ocean itself, to feel the swell and shape of the waves and to capture the water cutting over the rocks. Each work evokes the light and motion of the ever-changing coastal frontier.
The group was formed in November 2013, as a four-day experimental workshop in the making of collaborative prints. All creative decisions are taken collectively, and with five artists engaged together, the woodcuts are produced by a very energetic process. One work, Looking South, was included in the 2015 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, and sold out as a result. Also in that year, the Royal West of England Academy Open Exhibition celebrated Pine Feroda’s collection, for the second year running.
