10am to 5pm
An exhibition exploring contemporary techniques and themes in printmaking, including:
Henrietta Armstrong’s digital drawings of pylons, altered to appear like sacred mandala symbols to highlight the fact that although pylons have a stark brutalist structure “... the shapes within their structure echo the maths and geometry that forms the very foundation of nature’s architecture.”
Edén Barrena’s lithographs featuring drawings of folk art collections from around the world.
An Gee Chan’s mono screenprints, the titles of which reveal a dark sense of humour beyond what’s first suspected from the artist’s naive style.
Georgina Clapham’s etchings of the artist’s male friends in stereotypically “female” contemporary fashion and historical clothes, which evoke "an androgyny akin to Renaissance costume in which men’s and women’s clothing were less distinct.”
Jude Freeman’s ‘Efflorescence’ etchings which celebrate the changing cycles of the natural world.
Paul Furneaux’s Tokyo-inspired wall-mounted sculpture of solid tulipwood structures wrapped with Japanese woodblock printing (mokuhanga) which references “large blocks of office buildings … set off by trees in a traditional Japanese garden.”
Timo Lehtonen’s yam relief prints that take their subject from the Armorial of Haiti - the heraldic art and design of Haiti’s only king, Henry Christophe (1767-1820).
Heather MacDonald’s ‘Revealing and Concealing’ series of face and body prints, inspired by x-ray technology, and created by the artist imprinting herself onto paper with baby oil and graphite powder.
Sam Marshall’s etchings, ‘The Date Series’, that document the artist’s three-month exploration into the world of internet dating (after which Marshall reunited with her ex-boyfriend). “All the animals in the etchings are based on my dates,” says Sam, “and I am the fox-like creature.”
Jack Paffett’s single edition, gestural screenprints that incorporate the same print layers, but added in different colours, orders, and positions.
Peter Rasmussen’s bright, patterned monoprints, the method behind which involves one surface of paper being printed on from another painted sheet until the finished piece emerges.
Elliot Robinson’s ‘Saints and Sinners’ etching and aquatint series, which renders Saint Swithun and company in a contemporary idiom.
Ignacia Ruiz’s linocuts about leisure (“depicting activities we do for fun, but often find while doing them an underlying sense of stress and inconvenience”), and the city of London [note the Great Western Railway band].
