Welcome to the Inaugural Lincoln Print Fair… A new date in the Creative Calendar!
An exhibition and a fair, rolled into one! - A space to buy and see incredible prints, showcasing well known artists, Turner Prize winners and a host of up and coming and established local artists.
Fresh, Fun and Famous!
There is something for everyone!
Come and see works by Tracy Emin, Turner Prize winners Jeremy Deller and Mark Leckey, British greats like Joe Tilson and Mat Collishaw and the recently arrested, eco campaigner, Gavin Turk. alongside wonderful pieces by international and other award winning artists.
Darren Neave has curated the displays, he is perhaps better known as one half of ‘The Little Artists’… most famous for making Lego creations of Damien Hirst’s shark and Tracey Emin’s bed… He is also a recent Masters graduate from the University of Lincoln.
Darren will be launching a cheeky new print edition, high-lighting the onslaught of growing old discracefully!
The fair will also launch exclusive prints by local artists with national and international plaudits, these include
Andrew Bracey is a Waddington based artist. From the heart of rural Lincolnshire, his work has been exhibited widely, in both the UK and abroad.
He loves art books and his work employs a tension with ‘artful and respectful defacement’. His work is compelling and intricate.
Joey Richardson; internationally renowned woodturner and sculptor, is a liveryman of The Worshipful Company of Turners of London and a scholar of the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST). Her most recent work 'Distillation of Experiences', takes the form of a full sized, wooden shed, comprising of one hundred and twenty eight, pierced, detailed wooden panels, depicting poignant life events.
Inspired by this artwork, Joey is now producing unique, ephemerally-embossed prints, bridging the gap between traditional and contemporary wood-cut processes.
Another artist, Dale Wells is a master model maker, he produces 2D pieces that illustrate the ghoulish and scary miniature worlds he makes. His drawings are delicate, adding in rainbows and flashes of colour to inspire and snare the viewer…
Other highlights will include DIY prints and a selection from the multitude of talents from the students at the University and invited artists and print makers. There are plenty of undiscovered talents, all of which push the notion of contemporary print making and reproduction.
