A Bristol Baltimore Print Exchange

This April will see an international student print exchange exhibition between MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, USA) and UWE (University of the West of England, Bristol, UK). Fifteen students from each University were invited to produce a print edition that would examine how technology has expanded conceptual and procedural possibilities for making prints. […]

Curated Traveling Exhibition: The purpose of this curation project is to bring Just Press Print, a cutting-edge group exhibition from the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) at the University of West England, Bristol (UWE, Bristol) to Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore, MD; and to engage local, national, and international audiences through […]


Just Press Print in Print

  The Just Press Print exhibition publication now exists in physical form, a printed form. Link to the printed newspaper version of Working Proof: Featuring Just Press Print is now available to purchase courtesy of Newspaper Club


Press Print

Where it all began: The initial idea for the Just Press Print exhibition was inspired some 17 years ago after I attended a print exhibition by a highly acclaimed American artist at a prestigious museum in the USA. The exhibition in question would also later resonate with my research (and teaching) activity around the collaborative […]


Posting on Post-digital Printmaking

Recently been invited to exhibit my on going ‘Print is Dead series‘ (something I have written / talked about but never exhibited) in Poland at the Wrocław Academies Centre for Applied Arts and Innovation. The exhibition is in conjunction with the recent International Print Triennial in Krakow 2015  and will coincide with a symposium exploring the […]


Rewrites for Revisting.

Recent news for the news section. Had an article accepted by the journal Print Quarterly. I have been writing and rewriting this text for probably over two years, so pretty pleased for it to have found a home / house – publishing house. The narrative, title, word count and emphasis of the text has changed […]


Colourstory Collaboration Continued…

The continued collaboration with the Colourstory project has become possible after a second successful bid with REACT – through their Alumni Scheme. This time around the proposal will look to consolidate the project activity and foster further narrative based experiences that bolster the impact potential of the product. The academic collaboration includes myself with the added bonus of […]


Hell Yeah!

Looks like we will be editioning another black laser engraving with the artist Stan Donwood in August 2015. When I say black I mean black paper, not a black laser – that would be pretty cool though. The laser process that I’m referring too begins with the scanning of a drawn image that is then translated […]


Chasing Petrol Stations

          A sneak preview of the next Carolyn Bunt petrol station to be developed and editioned as part of Carolyn’s on going dystopian series with CFPR Editions. The recent image was snapped in Lanzarotte adding to previous exotic destinations for capturing her source image, e.g. Argentina, Russia, Reykjavik and… Gloucester. The development of Carolyn’s Station to Station (Once […]


Working Proof

The proof of working or working proof! – Over the next few weeks / months I intend to review some of my past, current and future print related projects by producing what maybe best described as both a beginning and summary publication. In regard to the latter, the publication will consolidate some of my research […]


Fairing Well Redux:

Fairing well: Redux: Pu(bli)shing for Profit Publisher: Printeresting Co-authored: Andrew Super and Paul Laidler Continuing on the last installment’s theme of folk emerging from the Multiplied Art Fair at Christie’s (read more here), we’ll turn our sights away from the students and not-for-profits, and towards the ‘may-or-may-not-have-gone-to-school-onces’ and ‘yeah-we’d-really-like-to-turn-a-profits’. This means talking to publishers that have […]


Nostalgic Returns

Recently had the pleasure of publishing a third fine art print edition with the artist Stanley Donwood. On this occasion I was interested in returning to our digital edition roots in inkjet printing – where it all began! After discussing this nostalgic trip Donwood decided that it would be in keeping for him to do the same. More over […]


Master’s of the Printverse

Collaborative Print Studio Project: On numerous occasions I have witnessed academics, artists, commentators and students make links between new print technologies and Science Fiction. Whether or not this is a light hearted connection it is undoubtedly a reoccurring phenomenon for example; Sci Fi and Print from Printeresting, Sci Fi inspired Workshops at MIT, RISD & Brown and Workshop […]


Already Made

Gonna go straight in to it. Like Duchamp, Myers has enabled an art work to exist by an idea alone. In keeping with Duchamp’s iconic Fountain (1917) the artist (Myers) has removed his hand from the work – albeit by employing another to create a potential object to exist, rather than appropriating an existing object […]


Print is Dead Series

‘Prints are like repeated stories, passed on from one to another, sometimes accurate recordings, other times with added variations and distortions, either by design or accident. Working within a series, prints become a game of whispers, each story retold, misheard and elaborated on to create new meaning and context’.
(The Mechanical Hand, 2012)


The Human Printer

‘First we shape our tools and thereafter our tools shape us.’ (M. McLuhan, 1964)


The Cadillac Whiz

I recently read an old Wired article entitled The New Remasters (1996 maybe) during my searches for digital printmaker practitioners. Amongst other things the article got me thinking about two areas of print; firstly the values and distinctions assigned to reproductions and secondly the ‘fine art’ of reproduction. The New Remasters summary: In short the […]


Donwoods Woods

Collaborative Print Studio Project A little over a year ago I began discussing the possibility of producing a print edition with the artist Stanley Donwood as part of CFPR Editions. A year later we were pleased to edition two new laser engraved artworks (February Holloway, 2013 & Wait here we will come for you, 2013) that later coincided with Donwood’s […]


Pay Close Attention

Laidler, P. (2013) Pay Close Attention. CFPR, Bristol. Grabado Y Edicion Print and Art Edition Magazine (g&e) (37). pp. 42-50. ISSN 1886- 2306 The article discusses how the technically led research inquiries at the Centre for Fine Print Research (situated within the University of the West of England, Bristol) extend into activities with artists and […]


Visualising Colour Tends

From collaborative print studio project to research bid: In 2011 I invited UK based artist Arthur Buxton to produce a limited edition fine art print with CFPR Editions. The invitation was led by my preoccupation with artworks / artefacts that traverses the physical & digital divide and how this post digital space maybe located within a Graphic Arts discipline. In the case of Arthur […]
