At the moment I have a few projects on the go and am printing them at the same time. Some cards and some tests for my entry for the wlyb Home exhibition.
This is all work in progress and not finished pieces. Printed at home as I have turned my daughter’s bedroom into a screenprinting area! She is away at Uni so doesn’t mind (that much).
Went to see some more interesting exhibitions today.
Firstly, Angie Lewin’s prints at YSP. Really informative to see a display case containing some of her pieces of cut lino, sketchbooks, book covers and tests. Her prints were exquisite and included lino cuts, wood cuts, screenprints and lithographs.
Then on to The Hepworth Wakefield. A magnificent concrete block of a building sited right on the water’s edge.
Highlights were some really interesting pieces by Paolozzi – especially an abstract collaged piece, Collage 1951, and a patterny screenprint, Theory of Relativity, 1967.
View from the gallery.
Some great colours, details and textures in Klee’s work. Great to finally see them in the flesh and to see the range of his work across his life span.
Mira Schendel was a real surprise – crossing the boundaries between fine art and graphics with some delicate yet bold typographic pieces. Very well curated and displayed in an engaging and sympathetic manner.
