Aberystywth Paper Press Print – Collaborative Portfolio

Earlier in the year I was really chuffed to be asked to contribute to a collaborative portfolio project organized by our head of printmaking Paul Croft. Over a year in the making, this mammoth undertaking has seen Paul coordinate 30 printmakers, ranging from staff, students and professional visiting artists all with a connection to Aberystwyth University School of Art. Each contributor submits an edition of 35 prints; 30 of the resulting portfolios go back to the artists and the remaining  5 to to various collections around the country.

The portfolio really demonstrates the variety and versatility of modern printmaking; techniques range from traditional intaglio, relief and lithography to digital and photographic process. Some of the most exciting printmakers working in Britain have contributed work including Wuon-Gean Ho, Marcelle Hanselaar, Anne Desmet and Edwina Ellis the entire portfolio will be exhibited in March as part of Impress 2013 a biennial printmaking festival held in Stroud and while I’m thrilled to be involved having my work exhibited alongside theirs is a nervous prospect!

Here is a small selection of some of the prints from the portfolio, more information and images of all the prints in the portfolio can be found on Paul’s website.

All images copywrite of the Artists, thanks to Paul for his time and effort in bring such a huge project together.

Raj Bunnag – Animated Linocut

When I first started considering how to animate my work, my thoughts on analogue animation stopped at flick-books and zoetropes but this impressive lino-cut by Raj Bunnag proves that photoshop isn’t always the answer.

The print is animated by a large-scale crank driven thingy (technical term) that resembles a printing press turned on its side, I like how its mode of display echoes its mode of production. The print itself is a mash-up of mythical iconography and contemporary pop-culture; AK weilding skeletons fight dragons on a ocean of nike trainers.

Here’s a ‘trailer’ of the work followed by a more in-depth video of it in action.

You can read more and find some pics of the work in process on Printeresting

Print Swap

So the grad show has been and gone and I’ve got that worrying feeling in the pit of my stomach that means I’ve got to try plan the next 3 months of my life, luckily, this isn’t one of those blogs so instead of moaning, here’s some prints…

Just taken part in a print-swap with some of the 3rd years, for some reason having to trek a stack of your own work home after uni seems like a massive chore, however having a nice stash of other peoples doesn’t seem so bad!
