Marian Haf’s work which can be varied in subject matter often have a common narrative of nostalgia and melancholy.
Collagraphs have become a firm favourite for Marian, as she feels a quality akin to charcoal drawing, a tactility and freedom in the mark making. She tears at the layers of mount board resulting in beautiful tonal depths which she then punctuates with sharp lines and staccato dots. Marian is increasingly blind embossing her paper with woodcuts and laser cut ply before printing the collagraph plate adding a subtle second narrative to the work that she hopes is caught on a second glance or closer inspection inviting the viewer to come in closer.
Marian’s recent ongoing series of prints The allotment is a look back over last year’s growing season, when the world stopped the sun shone and an afternoon down the allotment felt rebellious. ‘The Pease were sown on the first day of lockdown, they became a visible marker of the time passing, the cabbages grew massive lacy leaves as we slowly lost the war on caterpillars and the beetroots and leeks were a huge success.’
