When the centenary of the First World War was approaching I knew I wanted to make something that marked the event which we should never forget. I was pleased to be commissioned by the Folio Society to make a body of work to accompany a new publication of Wilfred Owen's poetry to be published to mark the centenary of Owen's death and Armistice Day. Owen was killed by machine gun fire while leading his men across the Sambre-Oise canal on 4th November 1918, one week before the signing of the Armistice on the 11th November 1918.
Neil Bousfield

Emotions and experiences are captured within memory and recorded as narrative and plotted against geographical locations. As such Bousfield chose to research some of the locations that Owen was actually posted to. He made drawings not only inspired by some of the emotions and situations captured within the poetry but also made drawings that used trench maps as a source. These were the very trenches that Owen was posted to and where he fought.

Neil Bousfield studied at Bristol's University of the West of England where he gained a Master of Arts degree in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking, awarded with distinction in 2007. In 2009 Neil was elected a member of The Society of Wood Engravers and in 2014 to the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and he exhibits regularly with both societies. Neil's work can be found in public collections including the National Art Library, Prints & Drawings Collection, V & A, London, the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, Ohio State University Libraries, USA and MMU Special Collections, he also has work in private collections around the world including Australia, France, America, Canada and the UK. 2017 - Jiangsu Provincial Art Museum, Nanjing, China
