This selection of work by William Tillyer is a representation of his prints spanning five decades in which time he has devoted a great deal of his practise to creating output in original print. Starting with works from the “Dry Lake” series in 1971 and ending with his most recent suite of prints “Zephyr” (below) from 2019.
Tillyer was born in Middlesbrough northern England, studying painting at The Slade. Tillyer has evolved into an astonishingly diverse and talented artist, and today he is one of Britain’s most respected artists, with a still growing reputation. In an age where personality has become a cult, Tillyer is concerned to let the painting speak for itself and to withdraw his own personality as much as possible.
Gallery TEN is pleased to announce the presentation of William Tillyer print works and acknowledges the kind collaboration of the Bernard Jacobson Gallery, London in making this possible. All copyright the artist and Bernard Jacobson Gallery unless otherwise stated.

In 1974 Glasgow historian John Hume photographed a series of derelict stone corn mill buildings on the banks of Ettrick Water in the Scottish Borders. His images, archived by Historic Environment Scotland show a place in decline – rusting corrugated iron roofs; boarded-up windows; interiors filled with broken furniture and abandoned tools; grounds potholed and overgrown.
Just four years later, in these same buildings, the first hot glassmaking furnace was lit and Lindean Mill Glass was born. Now, in 2018, the stone buildings are in pristine condition: carefully restored; set in beautiful gardens and they hum with both people and industry. Lindean Mill has become associated not with grinding corn but with making high quality glass. This transformation lies in the hands of two exceptional artists and designers – one from USA one from Sweden – and is a testament to the importance of international exchange to Scotland’s culture and economy.

Working with glass as my medium is always interesting. Using the lost wax technique I am able to create my own unique forms using wax giving me the capability to sculpt with the detail I require. Casting them in glass makes the forms permanent with the addition of vast range of colours, characteristics and textures that glass provides. I like to add found objects or other props to my work. Transforming them into a piece of art, changing their purpose and giving them a new lease of life. In doing so, I want my pieces of sculpture to tell their own stories. My objective is to inspire thought in the meaning and to make people smile!
A collection of Scottish inspired works by the printmaker Jason Hicklin.
“Etching is fundamental to my work; it creates an atmosphere and period of concentration. The act of decision making and commitment to the mark is paramount. The physicality of corrosion, an element of chance which I experienced in the landscape, can be re-engaged with during the etching process. This process, together with the rhythm of a series of prints, again, re-engages me with the walks I have made. The boundaries and limits can encourage improvisation and questioning of the etching process. This is how I work.”
The gallery will be showing for the first time a collection of works by Kristina Chan.
“My works are a culmination and accumulation into site specific history to depict socio-cultural entropic narratives. They explore the correlation between architecture and sculptural landscapes of derelict and disused spaces. I seek sites where the intersection between function and intention have fallen into decline and disrepair, where untold histories recount themselves, in all their brevity, satire, beauty, and collapse.”
