Geoffrey Clarke: Printmaker, A Sculptor’s Prints, Cambridge18. Oct - 2. Nov 13 / ended St. Barnabas Gallery
Tue-Sun 10:30am-6pm, Sunday 11am-5pm
To celebrate the relationship between Geoffrey Clarke RA and St Barnabas Press, an exhibition consisting of 60 artist proofs prints from 1949 to 1950, most of them never editioned, and a series of new collaborations from 2000, will take place in the galle
‘These late etchings explore different concerns, depicting the artist’s studio, or the viewer in relation to his work. The technique differs too – using line more delicately, and tone in the manner of a watercolour wash. James Hill, at St Barnabas Press, replicated Clarke’s intentions expertly. But more than this, he introduced a new technique of ‘plaster prints’, at last realising Clarke’s etched ideas in sculptural, fully three-dimensional form.’ – writes Dr Judith LeGrove.
During the exhibition, Dr Judith LeGrove, author of “Geoffrey Clarke: A Sculptor’s Prints” will host a talk : ‘Sculpting in two dimensions: the prints of Geoffrey Clarke’ on 26th Oct at 2pm. The talk will explore the relationship between Clarke’s etchings, sculpture, stained glass and textiles, and the artist's links with Cambridge since the 1950s.
