“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.”
Coming soon –
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.”
JAZZ – by Henri Matisse – Cut outs for the book were started as early as 1941, the book was finally published in 1947 in an edition of only 370, hand-coloured using the
pochoir process. In 2004 they were brilliantly reinterpreted by Idem Mourlot, the great Parisian lithographers. The intensity of colour is stunning. The lithographs offered here were published in an edition of 1500.
In our forthcoming exhibition of Henri Matisse original prints there will be a number of portrait images, some of which are shown below.
Following next at Gallery TEN – HENRI MATISSE (1869 – 1954) – original print exhibition – starting 22.03.18 – print collection including – lithographs, etchings & screenprints………
Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Pablo Picasso, as one of the artists who best helped to define the revolutionary developments in the visual arts throughout the opening decades of the twentieth century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture.
We are showing a collection of prints from The Curwen Press archive. Including prints by Henry Moore, Joseph Herman, Paula Rego, Edward Bawden and others. Some are previously unseen proof copies of works that did not get into edition others are studio proof copies from well known editions.

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”.
Robert Powell was born in Edinburgh in 1985 where he has lived and worked since his graduation from Edinburgh College of Art, with a Masters in Fine Art in June 2008. Since then he has attracted the attention of collectors and critics alike – primarily with his highly imaginative etchings which have been widely exhibited. He has more recently, also attracted attention with his sculptural work.
