The Print Exchange 2013

These mono prints are my entry into The Print Exchange 2013. The theme open for interpretation is ‘The Drive Home’. I chose to convey tiredness when driving through the night and how your mind conjures up the most surreal ideas.

The whole point of the exchange is to create a series of 12 prints, 10 will go to another unknown print artist who has entered the exchange. One will be archived at the Brooklyn Art Library and another will be entered for an exhibition taking place in New York. Its put together by the amazing people of TheSketchbookproject.com and just seemed like another fantastic opportunity to get my work out there and noticed. Im really looking forward to seeing which prints I receive.

Being a new artist I really love these projects, their not paid work however it is a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and for them to see your work. Ive had quite a few people recently complain about the fact this isn’t paid and why aren’t I concentrating and getting work that does pay. The simple answer is that I really enjoy taking part in these projects and the first bit of advice given to us by our lecturers in art school was that sometimes doing work for free in the beginning of your career can end up being far more rewarding. Creatively and monetarily.

Mono Print collage and paper cutting

DSCN1135 DSCN1132

I decided to have a look back at my print work that I did a few years ago. Im feeling somewhat  lost as to where I want to head with my work right now. I’ve been doing some stuff like cards, you know bread and butter work but I have to start thinking long term if I want to succeed as an artist. i found this book that I had done in my first year of university. Its a cut out book that documents my favourite times of holidaying in Perthshire in Scotland. I did a lot of mono prints and simple line drawings and then stuck them down to cut from them. I don’t think I appreciated this much at the time but I really love the delicacy of this piece. I loved not being to precious about things and I thinks thats what Id like to get back to if possible. DSCN1136 DSCN1137
