Grizelda Kitching

Grizelda Kitching is an Artist and Printmaker from Peckham, South East London.

She studied MA Printmaking at Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London.

Kitching’s practice primarily involves paper-based, process-led, printmaking. Typically using photography to capture images as a starting point, then developing a response to the original imagery through colour and mark-making. The development continues resulting in abstract, spontaneous pieces through the use of mono screenprint.

More recently, over lockdown and due and to restricted access to screen print facilities, her work has become more abstract. She has begun to create more spontaneous pieces using mono printing and painting.

Currently colour is central to her practice, along with texture. Bright blasts of colour inspired from her memory of the subject image. For more abstract pieces she uses colour more spontaneously, normally picking a colour palette beforehand.
