Blueprint @ Glasgow Print Studio

January 23, 2013

I will be showing new work at Glasgow Print Studio in February.

Initially conceived as an exploration of the links between alternative photographic processes and fine art photographic printmaking (printing with ink), Blueprint has grown in scope to encompass seven exhibitions, organized visits to five important archives, a programme of lectures and tie-ins with various engineering organizations.

Cell 16 is part of a series of works exploring the depth from the picture plane created by the photographic image  in comparison to the richly textured planes of abstract colour printed from etched steel plates.  This combination of digitally-printed photographs and traditional etching show very clearly the intermedial possibilities available in contemporary printmaking.

Low Sun and Man on Chair are shown here for the first time.  They are archival pigment inkjet prints, the first I have printed on Canson Photographic Digital paper I received as an award from the Krakow International Print Triennial.  I use the representation of the human form, rather than a metaphor for the figure, here.  The photographic quality is essential to my play with ‘realism’ in these images.
