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 […]

CFPR Editions

Fine Art Print Publishing Project. The collaborative print studio has had a profound impact upon the production and realisation of some of the most innovative prints within the discipline of fine art printmaking. Traditionally these activities have centred upon the hand and mechanical print, two cornerstones of the fine art print industry that may have less persuasion in the digital age. […]

In 2003 I worked as the Master Printer on a residency program that was organised by the CFPR […]
