Abstract

The exhibition by printmaking staff at the University of the West of England has become an annual event. At the end of the last exhibition the next one seems far away. But time flies and suddenly March is very near again, and panic begins. The theme ‘Near and Far’ triggered many reactions, all with the same resonances and very different embodiments. Maybe it is the printmakers method, the close contact to the plate, screen, print, the many steps which lead to the final result, which make us look carefully not only at objects and events but also at their meaning and emotional impact. We are always near to and far from the print, whether we edition for another artist, inspect each print very closely and know it by the end of the print run better than the artist or whether it is our own work which goes through many process ‘filters’, drifting further and further from the ‘original’ but coming closer and closer to a true memory. Maybe a print has not the directness of a drawing or a painting, but by printing many we can distribute our ideas further. We invite you to come close, to allow yourself to use the exhibition as a portal to your own world of ‘near and far’.
