Pushing Print 2013 festival runs from 5-20th October showcasing 93 artists across two venues which will serve as a platform for contemporary and traditional printmaking. I'm hoping to head down there as it looks like a great opportunity to see some inspiring work that will broaden my horizons on what can be considered printmaking. Everything from traditional screen printing to mixed media incorporating light and projection with the added bonus of workshops and talks.
Artists who have caught my attention are below. All quite similar when put together, I guess it goes to show my interest in the photographic print. Please check out their page by following the LINK. No doubt when I take a trip there, I will blog my review!
Alia Zapparova, Nothing left to see, (artist books)
Sara Lee, Passage through, (polymer gravure and woodcut)
Jessie Barnes, Untitled (photogravure)
Margaret Ashman, Altered Histories (photogravure)
