Shotgun Prints, Lynch and Patmore.

Shot Flag 52x58- woodcut




Myself and fellow printmaker have started an exciting new project which looks at ways a print can be created through one instant moment or sudden impact and still speaks volumes about print in contemporary culture.  The first set of prints look at the impact of shotgun blasts on shuttering ply, The work is created by a combination of relief and intaglio methods and uses bright playful colours, to convey an abstract woodcut that resembles flags in their iconic simplicity.  The prints are treated more like paintings and each print is a one off.

Royal Mail: V2 Top Prize Winner at the RBSA Print Biennial

I’m Extremely happy to blog post this time as yesterday evening I received a telephone call from the Royal Birmingham Society of the Arts of which I have two diptychs on display for the print biennial.

The Phone call was from the curator of the exhibition and he cut straight to the point that Nancy Campbell (Editor of Printmaking today) has chosen My two piece Royal Mail:V2 to be awarded top prize for the Print Biennial. Naturally I’m extremely honoured and delighted about this and when asked if I would be attending the award ceremony I was already booking the B&B for a little holiday in Birmingham.
