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.

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.”
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.
Following next at Gallery TEN – HENRI MATISSE (1869 – 1954) – original print exhibition – starting 22.03.18 – print collection including – lithographs, etchings & screenprints………
Matisseis 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.
