"This print was intended as a bit of fun for my fellow MA students at the end of our course. It has been very popular so I've printed a small run to sell. The text comes from The Little Friends of Printmaking. It was one of the last chances I had to use the lovely wooden type and the 1960s Vandercook presses in the print centre at UWE so I had to do something worthwhile!"
Text reads: Print faster mother fucker!
About the artist:
Fiona Hamilton is a Bristol based printmaker. Her work explores the ecological sublime and an appreciation of the majesty of nature. She uses detailed intaglio etching, drypoint, lithography and chine collé to draw the viewer into an ethereal landscape that has an impact on our sense of place in relation to the natural world. She uses primarily black and white with natural tones of chine collé and sometimes layers of lithographic texture to introduce warmth to the stark palette and to invoke a sublime emotional connection. She works from sketches, photographs, notes and memory to create her prints.
Fiona has an MA in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking from The University of the West of England (2023). Previously she studied Graphic Fine Art at Canterbury (2002) and established Soma Gallery in 2004.
