In March 2012 I proposed an exhibition idea to the Board of New Brewery Arts in Cirencester. 8 graduates from the Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking MA showing work from their degree show and how they developed their work after graduating from the course.
January 2015, here it is, Second Impressions. Printmaking in it's widest form.
Katie Wallis screen-prints onto fabric to produce one off lamp shades and complex cushions.
A glimpse to show how very different pieces can work together. Gemma's animation is on the right.
I made this enamel installation of Lost Relative labels especially for the show using
screen printed and digital transfers. These are for sale.
It is lovely to see Swarm installed once more, when you go to the show don't forget to put the headphones on and listen to David Julyan's sound track for Swarm.
Jane Sasanow's screen-printed 3D work.
Gemma Wright produced an animation of her cut and folded screen prints and the gallery has her geometric objects interestingly displayed.
Luke Salaman's work has developed into making and decorating ceramic vessels and his digital prints are extraordinary.
Coo Geller is displaying interesting work using laser cut orange peel together with exciting work shown in light boxes.
John Lynch uses mixed media printmaking to make his work.
Wendy Rhodes large charcoal drawing and monochrome etchings are full of light and reflections.
This is just a brief taster of what this exhibition has to show, we have all had initial support from Aderyn Taylor Roberts and it has been beautifully put together by Hannah Brady, we have also had tremendous support from The New Brewery Arts.
There is lots of interesting work to invest in, if we are all still producing work for this show 2 years on from our graduation what does the future have in store for us?
