Born in Bury St. Edmunds, England, Sybil Andrews worked with a range of media – however, it is her striking linocuts that generated international praise. During her time studying at the Grosvenor School under Claude Flight, Andrews was introduced to the aesthetics of Futurism and the innovative practice of linocut printing. Her acclaimed linocuts celebrate both the dynamism of the machine age and the powerful movement and dedication of working people. Ploughing Pasture is a vibrant example of the pastoral scenes that recurred within Andrews’s prints following her move to Canada after the Second World War. The sweeping lines, bold colour and rhythmic forms of this print beautifully combine her mastery of the modern linocut technique with her memories of rural Suffolk life.
