Oil a new contemporary art gallery in Hungerford will open this Wednesday with the preview of the Shotgun Prints created by myself and Bobby Patmore. Do come along to the opening if you are in the area and pop down to see the work there. There are some great artists and some quality art purchases to be made.
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.
