  1. APG Summer Portfolio

    IN CIRCULATION // APG Summer Portfolio and Exhibition
    10 ARTISTS 10 SCREENPRINTS

    In Circulation is APG’s Summer 2014 Portfolio of 10 screen prints.  The exhibition and portfolio brought together a diverse group of 10 artists who each created a new two colour screen print design. These designs were completed at the APG studio as original prints in limited editions of 30.

    Artists from a variety of disciplines including fine art, photography, sculpture and illustration responded to the call. The interest of the portfolio has been in the diversity of how each individual artist has approached the task.

     

    The Artists //Sarah Jane Palmer // Liz von Graevenitz // Lucy Allen // Anthony Bennett // Alex Ekins // David Frith // Emily Musgrave // Natalie Finnemore // Chella Quint // Rupert Wood

    In Circulation presents a great opportunity for visitors and print lovers to extend their collections with this exclusive Portfolio. In the case of some of the artists their piece may be a unique example of work in this format. All of the prints in this year’s portfolio are priced at £35.00 each or £300 for the full set of 10 prints which is presented in a free APG screen printed portfolio.

    8 colour screen print
    Image Size 60x75cm, Paper size 70x85cm
    Somerset Tubsized Satin 310gsm
    Signed Limited Editions of 50 prints each in 2 colourways

    We were commissioned in November 2013 to produce two limited editions of prints for the Sheffield based artist, Piers Williams. Piers works out of the Yorkshire Artspace Persistence Works Studio on Brown Street where he produces beautifully intricate oil paintings, his main subject being flowers. His work is sold through out the UK and he has a strong following in China.

    We are used to working with more graphical images but this print was approached with a painter’s eye, dealing with the interaction of colours at different levels of opacity. Merging the painter’s method of building colour with successive overlays, and the clarity of screen print has created a striking image that couples the vibrant block colours of the background with the delicacy of the Iris flowers.

    We shipped many of these prints to China, where Piers had a solo exhibition in the 798 art district of Beijing.
