PEOPLE AND PRINTMAKING : FIFTEEN YEARS | SWANSEA PRINT WORKSHOP
Since 2000, SPW has welcomed artist-printmakers from right here in Swansea and South Wales and from all around the world: from the UK, Ireland, from Europe, the USA and Asia. Their work expresses what we believe: printmaking is inventive and individual; printmaking creates original, interesting and engaging visual art. This publication collects work from 50 Artists and showcases the best of what we do.
The publication is a comprehensive full colour catalogue in Welsh and English. Beautifully designed by Ridler Websiter, it contains 60 pages with full page illustrations. The artists have not only contributed their work but also given us an insight into their process and what printmaking means to them.
Printing is playtime. James Donovan | I am engrossed by the alchemy and unexpected nature of print. Ros Ford | J.S. Bach said that music, or art, are for the ‘glory of God’ and the ‘refreshment of the spirit’. Or, to quote the engraver Anne Desmet, I hope to make something that ‘makes the heart sing’. In the end that’s what matters. Sally Hands | The painstaking, patient activity of printmaking takes me into the spiritual dimension of my inner self. Aleem Dad Khan | I am intrigued by the interaction of sculpted metal, fluid ink, and fragile paper in the making of a print. Aoife Layton | What I love about printmaking is its capacity to surprise. The process takes over. Things happen. I am always curious to see how my work on a metal plate will translate onto paper. Sometimes it’s magical. Sometimes it’s a disaster. Robert Macdonald
