The art of printmaking is being celebrated in a new exhibition opening next week at the University of Kent’s Studio 3 Gallery.

The University is collaborating with the Royal College of Art (RCA) to host Double Take – The Art of Printmaking, which will feature artists such as Tim Mara, Paula Rego, Chris Orr, Elisabeth Frink and Ana Maria Pacheco.

Running from 16 January to 14 May, the exhibition will also showcase the work of recent graduates of the RCA’s MA in Printmaking and feature a ‘vibrant and eclectic mix of styles and techniques’, according to Studio 3 Gallery curator Ben Thomas.

‘Some works on display will challenge assumptions about prints through their scale, use of materials or through technique. The subordinate status of the print to other art forms is contested, bringing printmaking into play with painting, photography and digital design and animation,’ he said.

‘Other works re-examine established techniques like etching, linocut and screen printing to explore their potential for future innovation.’

One of the artists exhibiting, Professor Jo Stockham, Head of Printmaking at the RCA, said: ‘This has been a fantastic opportunity to share our extensive archive of work produced in the department with informed and enthusiastic researchers and a new audience.

‘The range of work chosen demonstrates the way print circulates and creates dialogues through time which transcend specific mediums and attest to its continual reinvention and hybridity.’

Key works from the RCA’s printmaking archive have been selected for the exhibition by recent graduates as influences on their work. The majority of works exhibited will be from the last five years, but the earliest print dates back to the 1930s.

Artists exhibited are: Frances Bennett, David Borrington, Jessie Brennan, Tereza Buskova, Cordelia Cembrowicz, An Ghee Chan, Laura Clarke, Andrew Curtis, Elisabeth Frink, Joy Gerrard, Ioanna Gouma, Claas Gutsche, Oona Grimes, Beatrice Haines, Mark Hayward, Allen Jones, Serena Korda, Youn Jeong Lee, Claire Maunsell, Tim Mara, Sonsoles Marquez, Frederick Morris, , Fay Nicolson, David Orme, Chris Orr, Ana Maria Pacheco, Andrew Parker, Simon Patterson, Paula Rego, Giulia Resteghini, Dolores de Sade, Aithan Shapira, William Scott, Sarah Simmonds, Jo Stockham

    Throughout this great pattern of things you secure an A just for effort and hard work. Exactly where you misplaced everybody was first on all the facts. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more correct right here. Having said that, permit me inform you what did do the job. The text is certainly really persuasive which is probably why I am taking the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can easily notice a leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not necessarily certain of exactly how you appear to unite your points that help to make the final result. For now I will, no doubt yield to your position but trust in the near future you actually link the facts better.

    Throughout this awesome scheme of things you’ll get an A for effort and hard work. Where you actually confused us was first on your details. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be much more accurate at this point. Having said that, permit me say to you what did do the job. The writing is quite persuasive and that is probably why I am making the effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can certainly see the jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am not necessarily certain of exactly how you seem to connect your points that help to make your conclusion. For the moment I will, no doubt subscribe to your issue but trust in the future you actually link the dots better.
