20/20 Print Exchange

The 20/20 Print Exchange, run by Hot Bed Press, has produced the usual array of stunning responses to the 20 x 20 format and these can all be found on this Flickr site. 

In all 19 print workshops took part including
Birmingham Printmakers and each individual artist in return received a nicely boxed set of 19 prints randomly selected from the 236 participating artist + their own submission.

Additionally, each workshop was randomly twinned with one of the other 19, which in our case was
 Double Elephant so we have a set of prints from their artists and vice versa. 

New works

This week l’ve created a submission for the upcoming 20/20 event organised by Hotbed press.

’Spitfire’ is a 20x20 cm relief print cut from a piece of flooring vinyl.


The other print is a first for me in having a traditional rosin aquatint applied by hand and using a ferric chloride Edinburgh etch on zinc and measures 25x20 cm
The subject is inspired by the Clifton suspension bridge in Bristol.
