I am delighted and very excited to announce that some of my degree show prints will be included in the upcoming exhibition “Printed Matter:::::/Print Process.” Organised by Sean Scott – a 4th year Illustration student at DJCAD with whom I worked for the Edgar Schmitz “Sindanao” opening – the exhibition aims to bring together a whole variety of artists and designers who work closely with print in their practice. The result will be an eclectic mix of styles and techniques, demonstrating the incredible versatility of print in all its processes on an international scale; Sean has received submissions from Scotland, England and even Canada!
I have submitted the following:
You may see one, you may see all three! Either way this promises to be not only a fantastic exhibition but an opportunity to find yourself sharing a space with processes you may not have seen before. And the only way to truly engage with prints is to see them face-to-face, stick your nose up against them and get a sense of the physical presence of ink on paper. I find this so with all prints but particularly mine – they just don’t compare on a computer screen.
Printed Matter:::::/Print Process opens for preview at DJCAD this Thursday 22nd February 2013 and will run for a month.
As the first major print-related shindig I have been involved in since graduating you can expect lots more on this over the next couple of weeks! In the meantime keep an eye on the Printed Matter:::::/Print Process blog.
