Commissioned Artist

Double Elephant Print Workshop

Apr 2014
  • Myself, three South West based artists and a guest writer are working with Double Elephant to explore the role of printmaking in relationship to our practices of body/site/digitality. Including an exhibition, symposium, catalogue and a forthcoming limited edition box set, the aim of Redefining Print is to develop hybrid approaches and challenge traditional boundaries of printmaking, enabling audiences to see print in a new light through its relationship to the interdisciplinary practices of the participating artists. I am currently working with ‘photo etching’, using photec or imagon film applied to geometric plates and printing onto folded paper. My enquiry around Redefining Print concerns folds, and the sculptural/spatial possibilities of the materials I am working with. Interests lie in drapery and the play of what is hidden and what is revealed through collage, layering and folded sculptural forms – the crisp pleats or drooping curves of paper and cloth – which will inform the forthcoming limited edition box set and later installation pieces during the exhibition in November 2015.
