Jason Hicklin | Out of Darkness: Boxed Set

The Pembrokeshire coast is one of the most varied, dramatic and celebrated coastlines in the world, and to anyone with even a passing familiarity with Jason’s work, its appeal to him should be obvious. For the last two years, he has been exploring the land and the islands situated off it, on foot and by boat, tracing every contour of its cliffs, sketching its promontories and outcrops and the ever shifting, immense body of water which seems to constantly threaten the very existence of the land itself. Out of Darkness is the result of this endeavour. It is quite possibly the finest testament to date of Jason’s intrepidity as an explorer of both landscape and the etching process.

 

Jason Hicklin and Eames Fine Art are delighted to be launching 'Out of Darkness', a boxed set of the complete Pembrokeshire etchings. Published in an edition of five, this boxed set brings together 38 etchings with written contributions from the writers of the 26 Group, with whom Jason formed a bond during past projects such as A Common Place, 2020, with Eames Fine Art.

 

Each writer has written a poem in response to these stunning etchings. The poems were then etched and printed by Jason Hicklin to accompany each of the four sections of this body of work. 

 

The custom made box inludes 38 of the Pembrokeshire etchings, including exclusive details from the 'Walking the Island 2021' series. The inside of the box is beautifully lined with etchings printed in gold ink. Each box has a colophon page numbered and signed by Jason Hicklin and Eames Fine Art.
