Chris Sleath is a relative newcomer to printmaking and uses studios in Manchester and Edinburgh.
“I am naturally drawn to the precise technical processes in printmaking but also encourage the unpredictability and spontaneity which can be achieved by a happy combination of accident and naivety. I am interested in the immediacy of printmaking and most of my work is the result of some kind of collaging before or during the printing process. I am inspired by the relationships between mankind and manmade machines”
Chris is influenced by the work of the Dadaist, Russian Constructivist and Bauhaus art movements of the 20th century and his obsession with 1950′s classic lightweight bicycles is frequently seen in his work.
Norman McBeath is a photographer and printmaker, based in Edinburgh, whose work focuses on people and places. The National Portrait Galleries in London and Edinburgh have over fifty of his portraits in their permanent collections.
A number of award-winning writers have produced original responses to his photographs including Jeanette Winterson (Oxford at Night, 2006), A. L. Kennedy (Evidence, 2006) and Janice Galloway (City Stories, 2008).
He has recently collaborated with two leading poets: Plan B (Enitharmon Press, 2009) with the Pulitzer Prize-winner and former Professor of Poetry at Oxford, Paul Muldoon; Simonides, (Easel Press, 2011) with Robert Crawford, Professor of Modern Scottish Literature at the University of St Andrews.
David Faithfull is an artist, printmaker and curator based in both Edinburgh and on the Isle of Mull in Scotland. He lectures at the University of Dundee and publishes Artists Book, Prints and Multiples under the Semper Fidelis imprint.
Much of his work involves his relationship with the natural environment, through Palindromic and Panoramic forms and sequences. These involve extensive studies on the Scottish Hebrides and include the recent launch of the Artists Collective 6°W and the collaboration with the poet John Burnside and the Scottish Book Trust on the Isle of Jura. This also featured in Polygon’s ‘The Spirit of Jura’ in 2009, as a visual chapter alongside pieces by renowned international writers. Other publishing collaborations include the Gaelic Arts Agency’s ‘An Leabhar Mor – the Great Book of Gaelic’, currently on its world tour.
Additional projects involve curating the highly acclaimed travelling Artists Book exhibitions ‘Cabin:codex’ 2011 and ‘Inkubator’ 2007 – 2011, installing specific themed spaces to challenge the nature of interacting with Artists Books. A recent series of prints for the Halifax/Bank of Scotland, was created using shredded banknotes, reflecting the 2009 stock market crash. Other printmaking projects include the ‘Jettison’ series of prints, multiples and Artists Books, documenting the crash of a Tornado jet near Torness nuclear power Station, in south-east Scotland.
Faithfull has exhibited extensively and has work in collections including the Tate Britain, London; the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh and the Hunterian, Glasgow; as well as numerous private collections internationally.
He is currently on the boards of Edinburgh Printmakers and the Society of Scottish Artists.
Catherine Anne Hiley
Born in 1979 to English and Canadian parents, Catherine Anne Hiley grew up in Germanyand trained in London, Berlinand Vancouver, graduating with a diploma in Fine Art from the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee in 2007. In 2008 she moved to Scotlandwhere she became a member of Edinburgh Printmakers.
While drawing is the starting point for all my work, the more applied process of printmaking and/or bookbinding – working with the materials, with machines, through many stages of production – help me to crystallise my initial ideas. The physical aspects of making the work are a great influence on the work itself and are vital components of the creative process. Things that fascinate me about both media are the possibility of multiples and the variations within an edition. I always try to use the medium which transmits my original intention in the best way possible. It is my intent to create pieces in which the content, form and meaning form a consistent whole.
Influences come from many sources, from personal experiences and observations through history, literature and music to art which I admire, such as Hans Holbein’s portraits, or the play of light and shadow in black and white films from the 1930’s and 1940’s. As someone who likes travelling, and has lived in different countries on different continents, narrative and journeying are important elements of my work. My general themes are probably human beings and the spaces they put themselves in, the relationships they build with one another, transformations they undergo, and the way they perceive themselves.
Patrizio Belcampo was born in Ravenna in 1979. Since 2003 he has lived in Edinburgh , where he became a member of Edinburgh Printmakers and focused his artistic practice on printmaking.
“While my work contains references to literature, material culture and the decorative arts, my objective in printmaking is not the illustration of ideas borrowed from those disciplines, but the realisation of well-resolved images through close engagement with technique. In other words, I am always just trying to make a good print!
My interest in flatness and palette reduction came into focus during a couple of years spent investigating the possibilities of silhouette in silkscreen printing via the paper stencil. More recently I have approached the medium of stone lithography with a view to exploring new surface qualities in my work”.
For the past three years I have worked as Printmaking technician at Bournemouth University. The teaching of printmaking processes has absorbed and overwhelmed me, and my work has echoed this daily preoccupation with making complex ideas and processes clear, with clarity and conviction.
Since leaving my job to move back to Scotland my days and preoccupations have shifted. I no longer have such a structured routine and can spend more days working and thinking alone. My prints are of those familiar corners, shadows and shapes looked at again and again as I think of something else. As my mind drifts on and an idea once clear and complete loses its form, the image of a lamp and its overlapping shadows remains, recomposed a little in an ideal frame to recall that shimmering moment of lucid thought.
