In Print

IN PRINT presents examples of some of the diverse and innovative work made by a small group of Northumbria University staff (from both Fine Art & Design) and our Graduate Fellows.

All of these artists are printmakers, having a genuine passion for print.  The work has been mainly hand-printed by the artists themselves in the print workshops at Northumbria or in their own studios and was produced using both traditional & digital techniques.  In some cases, the artists combine techniques, work collaboratively or draw directly over printed surfaces.

This small display aims to draw attention to the creative use of print processes, highlighting the continuing importance of acquiring technical or craft skills to fully realise visual concepts.

It also raises the question as to what value we place on work produced using print media as a means of visual communication. As well, we seek to challenge the generally accepted definition of an “original” artwork as being an exclusively unique item
