Offset – North Devon Art

I will be exhibiting at least three new prints at an exhibition called, ‘Offset‘. Offset is an exhibition of prints by North Devon Artists at West Buckland School which starts March 5th.

Offset printing is a commonly used printing technique in which the inked image is transferred (or “offset”) from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat (planographic) image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a water-based film (called “fountain solution”), keeping the non-printing areas ink-free.

“I keep thinking about George Braque who learnt artificial wood graining from his time as a decorator; the story goes that he taught Picasso and these painted renderings of wood surface became a staple of cubism.” Read more…
It is going to  be ‘fun’ to present a body of new prints, supported by a few images, drawings I did from  nearly 40 years ago. Some of the earlier drawings etc. are very similar to what is still being produced today. It might be interesting to see the chronological journey – maybe the viewer will say “I can do better than that”. I was tempted do a series of figures – I wanted to make them more than just ‘people studies’. I’m bored with ‘quick click’ ‘n ‘quick fix’ –  (modus operandi – these new prints will be the real statement and the paintings a re-hash of old tricks – shhh!).
