Marcia Teusink

Marcia Teusink – ‘December 2019 1’ (2019) monotype, ink on Somerset paper, 21 x 29.5 cm
Marcia Teusink -‘December 2019 3’ (2019) monotype, ink on Somerset paper, 21 x 29.5 cm
Marcia Teusink – ‘October 2019 2’ (2019) monotype, ink on Somerset paper, 21 x 29.5 cm

These monotypes are one-off prints, although I often work in series and use the ‘ghost’ of one print to work into for the next one. My studio practice is concerned with issues of precariousness and collapse, and also with taking apart and rebuilding structures. Monoprints are a way I research visual imagery in current events and everyday structures around me, searching for interesting marks, shapes and forms that I might then use in my painting or sculptural works.
Marcia Teusink – ‘Quiet Collapse’ (2019) monotype, ink on Somerset paper, 21 x 29.5 cm

Amanda Thesiger

Amanda Thesiger – Mono print, crayon and graphite on graph paper – 21 × 29 cm – Untitled

The prints I make are exploratory and organic. They often employ a combination of methods and media – from mono-printing to frottage to direct drawing – responding to marks and features in a tactile, fluid way – building elements of each print intuitively. I use ordinary materials and natural objects as source material and subject, making visible the overlooked and obscured.

Dawn Cole

Dawn Cole – 4 images are attached from my latest body of work – In Isolation

Dawn Cole – Dawn Cole is an artist based on the north Kent Coast making work in response to archives and history and exploring themes of time, memory and memorialisation. She primarily uses print techniques including solar plate etching and collagraph. Cole’s work takes a more conceptual approach to printmaking whereby the process and materials used are carefully selected for their relevance to the ideas behind a body of work.

Current moving image piece (Work in Progress) – exploring the control elements of digital communication devices and the ability to mute other people.

Louise Webb
A Tool for Loneliness – Please Stay Seated While the Vehicle’s in Motion
 
Exhibited in Gut Feelings 07/12/18 – 09/12/18
This work came from an interest in the isolation that can occur through communication devices in public spaces. Devices which initially are created to enable conversation globally instead are enabling an escalating loneliness. Developing a need for instant gratification of response and mimicking interaction without physicality. It is easier to talk through a screen now rather than engage with the people that surround you. Lack of body language means it is now easier than ever to interpret the words of a friend in multiple different ways and moods. Instead, a defensive stance can be created by the holding of a phone,a protective barrier from the conversation of a physical person, and avoidance of awkwardness.
