Hot off the press

The fourth set of posts for The York Printmakers Virtual Print Fair is about our favourite work and the inspiration for it.

 


I have chosen the ‘Language of Addiction’ prints which are part of my work exploring connections between local spaces and global issues. The work is based on everyday spaces such as car showrooms and road systems which are visually distinctive and are signifiers of fossil fuel addiction and climate change. They have been printed using a jigsaw of collagraph plates on my mini press.
These prints are currently on display in the ‘Potential of Pattern’ exhibition at Sunny Bank Mills, Farsley, Leeds.
