Emily Crookshank
Fishing Flies
May 22 - May 22, 2017

Having lived in Scotland for many years, and grown up with her father's hand-tied salmon flies, Emily Crookshank developed a fascination with the art of traditional fly-tying.

By adopting printmaking as her medium, Emily fused together two highly skilled practises. Fishing flies have been depicted through etchings and lithographs in even the earliest of fly-tying handbooks; though few have been recorded with this level of detail before.

An exceptional draftsman, Emily's ability to make accurate and life-like representations of the different feathers and materials not only pays homage to the skill of the fly-tyer, but also brings attention to the many beautiful and complex patterns of the classic salmon fly.
