High Definition: Selected works from Belfast Print Workshop, April - May 2008
MCAC is delighted to present ‘High Definition’, an en exhibition of selected contemporary prints from the Belfast Print Workshop that focuses on the use of colour and the process of printmaking. The Belfast Print Workshop is the longest established resource of its kind in Northern Ireland for artists wanting to work in printmaking media.
This exhibition will encompass the various means, methods and techniques that can be utilized in producing the printed image. A fine line is often drawn between craft and art in printmaking, the mechanical processes echoing an assembly line in opposition to the expressiveness inherent to this unique way of producing marks on a viewable surface. But the textures, surfaces, dents, grooves, wood-like graininess and colours that spark out while others recede, can only be achieved through printmaking.
