Hilary Soper


Hilary Soper is a founder member of 'Pressgang' and enjoys the creative interplay between painting and printmaking. Working mainly in etching and monotype, images are usually abstract or liberated from reality to match a particular mood. The influence of the nearby sea and warmth of the home environment are usually felt, and a residence aboard an expedition ship in Antarctica provided a powerful new stimulus.

With an etching press in the home studio printmaking can be an everyday affair, but the company,reassurance, drive and inventiveness of a working group - Pressgang - cannot be underestimated.
With fellow member Ysabel Winzar, Hilary has been developing new work which combines their images into multi-plate prints. These duets began with their 2015 show "Whatever the Weather" and they plan to continue together under their chosen name Compass Rose.
