Print Fusion (Gallery TEN)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

Printmaking today encompasses a wide range of artistic practices. To prove the point, this small but varied collection features work from nearly a dozen artists, showing off screenprints, lithographs, etchings and digitally-aided pieces. Standing out amongst them are Rebecca King’s vivid laser-cut cityscapes in luminous indigos and acid greens, and Sue Corke’s moody and imposing ‘Ideal Sketch Of The Moon.’ Next to such eye-catching designs, however, the smaller or more abstract prints seem crowded, and are easily overlooked. Partly the lack of space is due to the exhibition’s location in a commercial gallery, which can make viewing these works feel a little like window shopping. Ultimately though, this remains a satisfying showcase of contemporary talent and diverse technique.

Gallery TEN, until 1 Sep (not 7), times vary.
