“Where’s The Original?”
Where’s the Original?
I have a new show opening soon at the Bankside Gallery – along with eleven other professional printmakers.
It’s called “Where’s the Original?” – the cry of buyers at print shows: many assume prints are ‘just’ a copy of a (painted) original.
So we decided to do something about this – and not just show our work.
Instead, we are trying to de-mystify print by showing how prints are made.
We don’t focus on the technical process – rather the creative one – and we think the results are really interesting.
Visitors can see all this ‘thinking and making’ laid out alongside the finished work. See the example below.
Sketches, Drawings, paintings and proofs and plates from 12 artists are all there – and a big range of print styles.
The show is at the Bankside Gallery on the South Bank from 3rd to 30th September, so I’m sure you can find time to pop in.

Meet the artist
I’ll be in the Gallery talking to people on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd September from 1-4 pm.
Hope to see you there!
