THE UNIQUE AND THE MULTIPLE
Monoprint paintings and etchings
Rahima Kenner is a painter, printmaker and etcher based in Oxford, UK. Rahima studied Fine Art at the University of Reading and Central St. Martins School of Art, London. Much of her work is inspired by her travels in Europe and Asia Minor as well as by time spent in the Scottish Borders.
‘I create colourful works on paper, drawings and prints, for which I use the intaglio press. I sometimes combine this with collagraph. For a more painterly, free approach, I create layers of painting, passed through the press to make unique monotypes. My inspiration is drawn from the 13th-century love poems of Ibn ‘Arabi, landscapes of longing and the wild birds and animals of open spaces. Images are encountered, observed or imagined.
