Recently retired from a career in primary education, Sorrell now devotes much of his time to printmaking. His recent relief prints make reference to the 20th century artists, Eric Ravilious and Edward Bawden, who were inspired by the English landscape and, in particular, the Sussex Downs and coast where Sorrell himself grew up. Returning to the county for family reasons has given him the perfect excuse to develop new work based on the beautiful and varied Sussex landscape.
His etchings have been exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
He shows work in the Skylark Bookshop/Gallery in Lewes and in Primrose Gallery, Thrapston as part of NOS. He often exhibits in the local area, contributing to several Northamptonshire Open Studios events and winning the Best Studio prize in 2015. He runs tailor-made events in his well-equipped print workshop and shows a selection of work in his Coach House gallery.
Some of the artwork is now available in the form of high-quality fine-art giclee prints, signed by the artist and offered at a lower price.
