This month I have been drawing using a mashup of print technique:

Working towards a trip to Kölner Graphikwerkstatt. The purpose of this visit is to reconnect with Jutta Vollmer, whom I met at Liverpool’s John Moores Uni through EightDaysAWeek.

Jutta and I began working collaboratively when paired for the project PenPal in 2011 and 2012. Something integral to the partnership rang true.

Thanks to funding from a-n The Artists Information Company we have the opportunity to reconnect. At the time of applying for the funding I wasn’t sure why I felt the need but I’ve since given this a lot of thought.  Take a look at her instagram feed. I have a love hate relationship with the treatment of surfaces – decoration and pattern. I recognise this as an element of my practice needing serious examination. I think I will be able to look into it with Jutta. I’m going to suggest we create double sided drawings or prints and fold them, as a starting point. Also, using layout pads and carbon copy paper, draw sequentially and see what happens. She has a very solid drawing practice.

Here’s a recent record of play to provide visual (screen printed) content:
