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.
Last night saw the launch of the new Edinburgh Craft and Design Map. This is a collective led initiative to promote quality Craftsmanship and Design in the City of Edinburgh. For further details go to the Map website at Edinburgh Craft and Design Map
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.
