Printout at The Point, Doncaster

My monoprints are currently part of an exhibition called ‘Printout’ at The Point in Doncaster.  Alongside three other artists, the exhibition looks more closely at some of the different print processes and how you get from the initial idea to the finished piece.  Other types of printmaking included in the exhibition are linocuts, collagraphs and etching.  The linocuts by Graham Firth are a particular favourite – the detail in them is amazing.

In the exhibition I included the glass I use for inking on (you can see it on the extreme left of the above image).  It is a very messy and ‘covered in ink’ piece of glass but beautiful in it’s own right.  I now use the clean side to ink on but have the pattern from previous leaves showing through as I work.

As part of the exhibition, I have done a couple of workshops at the Gallery – one with a group of adults and one Saturday drop-in workshop with children and their parents, where we created a big leafy tree as part of the exhibition.  Here’s a close-up of some of the prints the children made.
