One of a series of etchings made whilst Artist in Residence at the Algarden Print Studio, Gothenburg, Sweden
Troubled Waters, an etching made from two zinc plates layering soft, aquatinted forms, reflects on memory, layers of time and place, and refers to the North Sea, grey waters and this line from the legendary Foggy Dew.
‘Their lonely graves are by Suvla's waves on the fringe of the great North Sea.’

This show includes the work of eight artists from across the UK who make contemporary reductive, geometric and systems-based abstract art works. The exhibition presents a selection of artwork that is by nature 'generative', created once the artists employ an external system or set of rules.
As part of the Printmaker's Council 50th year celebrations, new work 'Equilibrium' will be viewable on-line from 15 May-27 June.

“The idea becomes a machine that makes the art”
Sol LeWitt, Paragraphs on Conceptual Art (1967)
Seeking balance, 'equilibrium', with notions of simultaneous colour contrast adding to and disturbing this equilibrium. The works will be made to a 50cm square format as a celebration of the five decades of the existence of the Printmaker's Council.
Collages 'Equilibrium' made last year. I'll be taking them into print soon.
