Pressing Matters magazine - Issue 5
There is a real joy in creating something unexpected from a simple idea. That notion is echoed throughout issue five, be it an Argentinian artist bringing together a series of small printed pieces to create a breathtaking letterpress sculpture, or printmakers using overheard phrases as a jumping off point to create imagined worlds and bold poster prints.
Capturing a sense of place using relatively simple tools can be a real challenge, which many of our featured printmakers jump into head first, be it linocut, etching, screenprint and more. Seeing how an artist makes their marks, chooses colours, looks for balance (and sometimes discord) to create a print never fails to interest me. In some cases, working together on a shared creative idea, other times head down (locked in their shed with the radio on), making time to make their work and see it come to life.
I hope this issue gets you fired up to make more prints, sketch more sketches and make time to realise your ideas.
