First Imprints is a unique science/art collaboration between Oxford Printmakers and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. This touring exhibition aims to give an artistic expression of the amazing story of how complex life developed from just single cells.
Rare fossils, around 500 million years old, were loaned from as far away as China and Greenland. Many of these fossils were mere impressions on the rock surface of strange, soft-bodied creatures. The task of bringing these precious creatures to life visually fell to 22 enthusiastic artists from Oxford Printmakers, led by earth scientist and printmaker Sally Levell.
