Magazine prints

Printmaking is largely miss-understood in a contemporary art context and generally confined to historical processes.

This is the departure point for these works. I see printmaking as potentially the most relevant form of contemporary art, it straddles both traditional and contemporary visual culture. Using a historical knowledge of print and visual production, I acknowledge that printmaking is the origin of our current visual world. All visual technologies derive from the historical processes of printmaking.

Looking towards mass production as a form of printmaking. I produce prints as published pages in popular visual art magazines.

The process of mass produced offset lithography is an updated version of the traditional stone lithograph with this insight I produce my own version of printmaking as mass produced unlimited print editions available at the cost of a magazine.

The aesthetic is text and basic forms, commenting on print and popular culture simultaneously.

I work outside the traditional concepts of unique object exclusivity limited edition and gallery.

My work is an attempt to democratise/inform/play/quote/humour and revitalise printmaking.
