V & A Prints Collections

.

Aberystwyth : Paper Press Print has been accepted into the print collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

It has also been accepted into the University of Wales Art Collections where research is an important aspect of their activities, with emphasis particularly upon the history of graphic art, the development of new processes in etching, lithography and relief printing. The University of Wales Collection currently has an archive of over 10,000 prints, drawings and photographs and the galleries regularly host both touring and in-house curated shows of historical and contemporary prints by leading practitioners of national and international repute.

This is very exciting and prestigious and allows me to now have the heading of ‘Public Collections‘ on my artist’s biography.

I wrote about the portfolio in a previous post outlining,  ‘On his web-site Paul describes it as ‘a portfolio celebrating the diversity of printmaking from traditional to digital. Each of the 30 professional artists, staff and students participating in this project have had contact with the print studio at The School of Art Aberystwyth between 2000-2012. Artists have been encouraged to be experimental and processes include combination of print media, traditional and digital processes, hybrid prints as well as more inter-disciplinary activity such as prints developing from photography, film and video. Artists were also asked to reflect upon their own practice and to produce a print that is representative of their current work’.’
