Print Exchange

Cardiff Print Workshop members have been invited to exchange prints with artists based in Grenoble, France where one of our members previously worked.

The workshop in France is called “Le Geste et L’empreinte”, and is run by artist, Anne-Laure Heritier Blanc, who currently leads printmaking sessions at the workshop on a monthly basis for a dozen or so people. See her website here.

 

I was paired with Marie-Noelle, who primarily etches onto tetrapack. This is the print she sent to me in response to one of my graffiti bottle series cyanotypes. She wrote: A bottle in street art style that only remains a reflection of a peaceful garden.

This is the cyanotype I sent in return. It is from my ‘Genie in the Bottle’ series, made using vintage bottles and figures taken from ancient Persian and Indian manuscripts.
