Hermes: Snowdrop Greeting CardStationery
An innovative sculptor, printmaker and teacher, Hermes was trained by the unconventional British modernist artist Leon Underwood (1890-1975), who encouraged her to capture forms in the natural world with a rapidly flowing line.
Hermes’ prints evoke the pleasures but also the strange and sinister elements of water, plants and animals. Water is the key element in Hermes’ world; a keen swimmer and diver, she revelled in the physical sensations and abstract patterns of water. Using this inspiration from the natural world, she transformed her direct, and often scientific, observations of her surroundings into intricate wood engravings, large-scale linocuts and sculptures.
