Curator Statement

My practice as both a curator and writer is rooted in printmaking, its position within the wider contemporary visual landscape and the rarity value systems it so often conforms to. Print’s historical links to early mass production, technology, craft and the democratisation of the Art image are unique to the medium. Unlimiting the Edition is the culmination of an academic research project which focussed on the widely accepted convention of limiting editions of hand-made, original fine art prints. In the wake of digital reproduction and online image saturation, the analogue, tactile and material processes embedded within printmaking have become sites of conceptual and technical exploration. Unlimiting the Edition features 6 printmakers, each of which engage with the printed multiple as medium. These practices complicate conventions, pushing Print beyond the limits of the edition.
