This week's Work It! is celebrating all things print, in homage to our friends at Cambridge Original Printmakers, whose call out for submissions closes at the end of this month.
They're an independent collective of printmakers founded by Artfinder artist Anthony Hopkinson along with printmakers Sue Jones and Jo Tunmer. For further information on how to apply, please click here.
One of the organisers of Cambridge Original Printmaker's Biennale, Kate is also the owner of the beautifully chaotic studio used as over cover image.
Here's what she gets up to in it:
Yorkshire-based Sarah Harris joined Artfinder in November 2015. She produces limited edition silk screen prints taken from original drawings, depicting local scenes of the beautiful Yorkshire Moors. She aims to inspire exploration and evoke memories, whilst viewing the subjects as if they have just been rediscovered.
UK-based artist Francois Domain explores mathematics, science and biology in an artistic light, producing bold, graphic screenprints. New to Artfinder in December 2015, he lets us into his studio for the first time.
Ellen Von Wiegand works primarily with lino. She was initially attracted to relief printmaking as a highly physical art; there is something nostalgic in the act of using age-old tools to gouge an image out of a block. In her exploration of the method, she has come to enjoy the restrictions presented by the lino block, which force her to think clearly and simply about the composition before making the first cut. She loves how a basic black and white print makes her consider new ways to produce the effects of light and tone through the use of pattern and texture.
