Form/Fragment

  • 10 January — 7 February 2015 *on now

Form/Fragment presents five contemporary artists from around the UK whose work explores the potential of the print medium beyond the two-dimensional plane.

Using both traditional and digital printmaking techniques- often in combination- these artists launch investigations into disparate themes, then- through folding, sculpting, wrapping, scrunching, collaging, arranging and animating- reinforce their creative assertions by propelling them into the three-dimensional realm.

Aiming to create what artist Paul Furneaux describes as a ‘shifting passage between the pictorial and the physical space,’ the artists presented here defy conventional limitations of printmaking, break the boundaries of the picture frame and bring new life to the techniques of screen print, lithography, woodcut, linocut and photo-etching.

WYPW Exhibition- GROUNDED: Henry Moore - John Piper - Graham Sutherland

  • 14 February — 4 April 2015

We are extremely pleased to announce the details of our forthcoming exhibition GROUNDED, which brings to West Yorkshire a carefully selected collection of prints by three of the most prolific and revered British artists of the last century- Henry Moore, John Piper and Graham Sutherland. The exhibition draws together lithographs, etchings and screen prints produced between 1950 and 1986, which expose the artists’ shared interest in metamorphosis and desire to fuse the characteristics of the human form with those of the natural landscape. Whilst striving to capture and distil the essence of human presence throughout the post-war period, printmaking became a way for these three artists to test their ideas, which often involved blurring the boundaries between anthropomorphic figuration and geological study. This display at West Yorkshire Print Workshop will serve to present the disparate outcomes of such trials, and celebrate the expressive potential they each found in cultivating ambiguity between figure and ground.
