artists residencies, prints and projects

The stories behind the prints

A finished print is just the tip of an iceberg that contains so many things; initial ideas, rough sketches, experimental plates and colour tests, among others. This process of designing and making a print involves false starts and dead ends, as well as flashes of inspiration and creative flow. The work that arises from an artist’s residency or public art commission involves all this, as well as research, workshops, collaboration and discussion with colleagues, staff and the public.

In this gallery I aim to give you a bit of insight into the story behind the finished images.
