This exhibition will focus on a series of monoprints created through a new and original printmaking technique. One that uses leather as either plate or paper, providing surprising and unique results. The unifying subject of the exhibited works will be anatomical and physiological, focusing on the skull and face, both human and animal. There will be a workshop event that will begin in advance of the exhibition and run throughout, with visitors and invited artists creating their own prints using this technique. The results will be displayed as part of the exhibition and be catalogued and promoted using press and social media.
Invited artists will be UK and internationally based. Exhibited pieces will also feature the use of experimental processes and techniques, but with their basis in the use of ink, pressure and paper. This means by using hand, implement or press, deconstructing the process of printmaking to it’s core elements.
