“My work is about a world on the edge. I explore the margins and wastelands where construction merges with corrosion and the primordial meets the industrial. Caught between fabrication and gestation, these are sites of instability, fragility and vulnerability. A moment in metamorphosis transformed and transferred through oil and acid. The remnants of zinc and traces of ink gesture a delicate existence.”
Ralph Overill graduated with an MA in Printmaking from Camberwell College of Arts in September 2011 and shortly after was awarded the Clifford Chance Purchase Prize for his piece ‘Land Site’ by Chris Orr RA. Ralph works from his home studio in Essex, where his practice explores the serendipity and sensitivity of surface in intaglio and relief prints. He exhibits his work regularly in London.
