Explorations in printmaking
Updated: Apr 29, 2019
'We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time.'
T.S Eliot, Four Quartets
This quote has been knocking around my head since I began studying an MA in Fine Art Printmaking back in September 2018. It's been an exciting and at times brutal journey into many things: learning and mastering techniques, the artworld, art academia and how to survive as an artist. These blog posts will by necessity back date to the first term of the course, and I hope to show some of the things I've learnt about printmaking and being an artist since then. Going forward, I hope to detail my journey searching for my work, and way of working. I've used the internet extensively to teach myself different techniques and individual blogs have helped so much; I'd like to focus on experiments and which techniques have worked for me, and a bit about practical things I've learned about presenting work and marketing.
