Wooler-based artist Jonathan Lloyd attracted overwhelming interest in his print Altarpiece in Dazzle Camouflage, when it appeared alongside work by Tracey Emin at the prestigious Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Jonathan’s prints sold out within the first three hours when it opened in London last week.

This is the third consecutive year his work has been picked out by the lead artists for the exhibition, which is the world’s largest open-entry exhibition, receiving more than 12,000 entries.

Jonathan’s print was meticulously hand-carved in a series of woodblocks and printed on a fine Japanese paper. The subject is based on a medieval altarpiece found in a church in Thronham Parva, Suffolk.

You can see it at the Old School Gallery in Alnmouth until August.
