I am really excited that 3 of my hand-finished prints and 2 originals have been accepted
for the "Thesis" virtual exhibition organised by "The Holy Art", a gallery that organises physical and virtual exhibitions of contemporary and modern art. All work is for sale.
The virtual exhibition starts today. To see the exhibition, go to the virtual exhibitions section of The Holy Art. My work is displayed in Room 3 of the "Thesis" exhibition. If you are in London, you can also see some of the work displayed on big plasma screens in the gallery. The gallery address is The Factory, 21-31 Shacklewell Ln, London E8 2DA.
I can't wait to see my artwork displayed in a new context.
The work shown in this blogpost are 50cm x 50cm hand-finished prints derived from my 90cm x 90cm "Origins" painting, which has recently found a new home. (Check out my previous blogpost for the story behind "Origins".)
Putting together a selection of small original mixed media experiments and hand-finished prints as "stocking fillers" for Christmas, has whetted my appetite of exploring prints on a larger scale.
I have enjoyed the challenge of capturing some of the vitality and explosive power of the original painting in the hand-finished prints. I have hand-finished each of the prints by collaging elements from other prints and using millet seed husks.
For a glossy finish, I have chosen C-Type Fuji Gloss paper and for a matt finish, Hahnemuehle Bamboo. All print material was produced by carbon-neutral print company The Print Space.
Remember that the prints can be turned - to my mind, there is no right way up. I have shown here the two ways I like to display "Origins."
