04. Sybil Andrews: The Art of Linocut

Best Documentary -Iris Awards
"Recommended. This biographical documentary reveals in personal interviews the artist's passion for art in any form and especially drawing. Examples of her works technically are easy to see and understand." -EMRO Review
This highly acclaimed and award-winning classic documentary offers a personal look at the 70-year career of artist Sybil Andrews (1898 - 1993), primarily known for her modernist color linocut prints. Born in England, she reflects on her formative years there, being taught linocut printing by Claude Flight at the Grosvenor School in London. While much of her work evoked a bygone, agricultural age, its style we see embraced the spirit of modernity that was sweeping through British art at that period of time. We learn of her life in Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada, where she emigrated with her husband Walter Morgan, in 1947; and, collectively, her recollections, combined with images of her artwork, reveal her lifelong passion for art. Produced by Peter Horvath. 03/10DE JSCA 30 min.
