Bringing together a unique and affordable selection of works celebrating the medium of print, The Cut is a carefully curated collection of limited edition prints showcasing the distinctive diversity this medium affords. Contemporary and multilayered in their production, printmaking enables artists to experiment, with many using a wide range of techniques in their practice or even in a single piece to create prints that span from the simple to the intricate, geometric to linear, graphic to abstract and everything in between…
Creating subversive images of childhood that question nostalgic, saccharine depictions of growing up, Ceal’s work is both darkly comic and disturbingly truthful. Ceal graduated from The Royal College of Art MA in 2008 and her work explores the dark side of British culture focusing particularly on ideas of youth and innocence.
British artist Edd Pearman graduated with an MA in Fine art at the Royal College of Art in 2001. Shortly after, he won the Linklaters Printing Award and was exhibited at the Dali Museum, Hockney Gallery and the Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art.
In order to produce his prints Peter Blake works with one of the leading print studios, Worton Hall. Blake maintains a close involvement with the process until he is confident that his artistic objective has been achieved. Today his style retains the same magic as always, producing work which is still as captivating as his work of 30 years ago.
