Thurs 26th March: Wish You Were Here

Well luckily I was there! It was Vicky's penultimate printmaking show before her MA showdown. Her pigeon triptych is looking fresh and fantastic at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith until April 12th. Although they are a menace to society, the urban vermin have been transformed into beautiful prints that might end up as a cheeky wallpaper design. Vicky is also pushing the process of hand printing to the max on a collaboration with graphic designer Luke Tarpey. We had a sneak peak at the initial trials and an explanation of how she laboriously individually cuts each etching plate to position the composition..............not to mention the rubbing and cleaning inbetween presses............its a labour of love that is for sure! And I LOVE it!
