British artist Roy Voss is known for his large works which often juxtapose epic landscapes – meadows and mountains – with 3D words that disrupt the meaning of the image. Voss is represented by Matt’s Gallery and has exhibited at Frieze, the Fordham Gallery and the Whitechapel Gallery in London and Bradford's South Square Gallery, among others. His fascination with nature and the natural world comes through in this linocut of a crow with its stark black lines.

 

 

Soho House's curator hung this piece in Soho Farmhouse and says, “It was the most obvious, natural fit - this gothic, Edgar Allen Poe raven which is wonderful and I’ve always been obsessed with that poem. A lot of his work incorporates text so this isn’t one of the most obvious pieces but I think he did a series of prints of scarecrows that this was affiliated to. I love its linocut scrawlness which feels amazing. He’s really interested in iconography of the country and the British landscape, even an urban idea of the countryside, I mean you get these birds in Green Park, in Hampstead Heath, it’s a very British animal.”
