Part of my artistic practice is about bringing people together to learn new art skills and build their confidence to make work together and be proud in what they create. I worked with a varied group of young people over 6 weeks all of whom suffer from sever illnesses like Cancer.
I introduced the participants to various different printing techniques from mono drawing, stencils, and reductive printing to lino cuts and relief based printing. It was a very open ended project to enable the participants to get experimental ad try as many different techniques as possible. We then chose our favourite prints to be laminated and threaded up together to go up on the hospital corridor as a collaborative sculpture.
This bringing of the prints out of the wall and into sculptural form is something I would like to experiment more with and continue to blur the lines between my printmaking and installation based practice.
