Cat Outram

Coming soon to gallery TEN works by Cat Outram, Edinburgh Based printmaker.

“ I turned professional as an artist when both my sons were very young so, until very recently, worked only part-time. Now that has changed I have started to explore the medium, to try to be more ambitious, more personal in my subject matter.  I have been looking at different ways of adding colour by incorporating collograph and monoprint techniques. Further and for this exhibition I have been exploring the possibilities of embossed ‘blind’ prints.

I am drawn to the linear around me; fine detail within the geometric, structural shapes of buildings or landscape. I love the tracery of winter branches against a clear sky, or shapes picked out by sunlight. It is light especially that moves me; its quality either in strong contrast to shadows or as soft tonal layers, as in a scene at dusk”.

JAPANNED! – Edinburgh Festival Exhibition

Japanese printmaker Kouki Tsuritani will be exhibiting a collection of his outstanding mezzotint prints in the Edinburgh Festival which will inspire and enthral viewers with both their fantastical images and his technical skills. Alongside Kouki’s work, Edinburgh based Gallery Ten is exhibiting a number of International and British artists who either use Japanese techniques or draw inspiration from Japanese art and imagery. The applied arts will be represented by a number of Japanese printmakers, jewellers, ceramicists, glass and leather artists whose work shows the extraordinary and refined  qualities of contemporary Japanese art and applied art.

 

PRINT FUSION – Now Open

After a successful opening our Edinburgh Festival exhibition is now open. PRINT FUSION is a collection of eleven printmakers showcasing their work in Gallery TEN Edinburgh.

Print now includes photography, mixed media and digital technologies all being utilised alongside traditional printmaking techniques.

Presenting some of the expressive and varied range of artistic output we explore the technical issues that occur from the use of these very different processes within printmaking. The exhibition runs until the 2nd of September.
