I have been sorting through my letterpress prints and then taking sections from each of the 4 people’s prints. These will then be used for screenprinting. I have some that are also the full set of words for each section. No doubt these will all be layered up / probably with different colour ways for each person. Need to coat my screens with photo emulsion and then expose the images. Only then will I be ready to screenprint.
Just when I thought there was no more letterpress to be done for the moment…
I decided to start looking at the overlapping words between the 4 people. Now I have a nice collection of groups of words each exploring different relations. There are links between all 4 of us
These are then followed by links between pairs and trios. This seems to have added an extra layer of information and secrecy – excellent!
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.
