Paul Coldwell in Conversation


The artist Paul Coldwell will discuss his exhibition Temporarily Accessioned: Freud’s Coat and Other Works with Ben Thomas on Tuesday 8th June at 5.30pm (see below for the Zoom link). This show is currently running at The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge until 27 June.


Coldwell is perhaps best known as a pioneer of digital printmaking, using the computer to weave together layered images that poignantly address themes of memory and identity, exile and loss. He is also a noted print scholar, publishing the acclaimed Printmaking: a contemporary perspective (2010), and curator. Since his retrospective exhibition in 2013 at Studio 3 Gallery, Coldwell has increasingly explored the creative potential of making subtle interventions in museum environments like Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge or Sir John Soane’s Museum in London. The work currently on display in Canterbury grew out of his long-standing relationship with the Freud Museum in London which in turn grew into a collaboration with the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna.


Ben Thomas recently published a review of Coldwell’s Picturing the Invisible exhibition in IMPACT printmaking journal.
