British Printmaking at Glasgow Print Studio until 31 Aug.
The comparatively small number of printmakers who acheive the international standing of their painting f
counterparts has tended to suggest that
somehow print is a less interesting medium. This exhibition should go a long way to disproving that, including as it does prints by some of the big names of the last few decades. Bringing the work of some of Britain’s most celebrated living artists to Glasgow was one of the objectives of the exhibition, butthis is notjust a show of names: works by well known
\“x " T». ‘ ‘ \ \WILL
' combination of Ienticular acrylic with
collotype used by another big name
, from the Pop era, Richard Hamilton, to
l create an eerie hologram-like
printmakers, like Patrick Caultield and i
David Hockney, are shown alongside those of artists more often associated
with other media: Paula Bego, Eduardo I
Paolozzi, Howard Hodgkin and Victor Pasmore.
The criterion used by Martin Hopkinson — of the Hunterian Art Gallery - in his selection of these fifteen artists, was that they should have played significant roles in the development of printmaking since 1945. His choice demonstrates a variety of techniques, from the traditional etching/aquatint used by Paula Rego in her excellent Nursery Rhymes series to the hi-tech
self-portrait entitled Palindrome. William Tillyer’s Untitled illustrates how print can be used to produce large-scale, colourful, abstract work, and, along with the three intensely coloured works on show by Howard Hodgkin, is a powerful contrast for the smaller, figurative works of Rego and Hockney. Hodgkin‘s largerworlt, Red Palm, and Tillyer's are probably the most striking prints for their sheer size and colour, highlighted by their
positions in the gallery, butTim Mara’s
three screenprints are intriguing for their combination of stark black backgrounds with photographically reproduced objects. Patrick Caulfield is represented by three of his immaculate screenprints, including the witty Picnic Set (1978) comprising three tomatoes and four bottles of wine.
British Printmaking is not, and does not claim to be, any kind of survey of current trends in the print medium. Nevertheless, it is a good collection of
works, made mostly overthe last ten to
fifteen years, by some of Britain's majorartists. (Katrina M. Brown)
