Original 20th/21st Century British Print Work
This autumn the gallery will be celebrating the power of 20th and 21st Century print, including rare pieces from a private collection and works created with cutting edge digital technology.
Through the evocative abstract forms and sheer intensity of colour in the work of Sir Terry Frost RA, Albert Irvin RA, John Hoyland RA and Douglas Portway, print work engages and inspires with a visceral immediacy that belies the meticulous precision inherent in its making. Today print also harnesses the burgeoning potential of digital technology, with mesmerising, thought provoking and above all, beautiful results. Our show includes works by Chuck Elliott, who uses the latest digital studio tools to create complex works that meld art and science, colour and form, geometric perfection and natural asymmetry.
