Aoife Layton (Irish, b. 1979) is an artist and printmaker working almost exclusively in mezzotint for over a decade. Layton began consistently using mezzotint while studying for her Master’s degree in 2007, drawn to the richness and tonal subtlety of the medium. Layton’s prints show intimate portraits of humans and non-human animals. Often, her images of non-human animals explore life within human built environments. The juxtaposition Layton makes between man-made versus nature is amplified through the rich tonality of her chosen medium, and her use of vast white or dark space is unique among mezzotint printmakers.
