Shifting Registration: an Exploration of Printmaking and Possibilities


This practice-led research explores creative opportunities within fine art printmaking. In the context of my own practice, it investigates how new possibilities might emerge from the interplay between a technically precise and nuanced medium and an exploration of creative approaches within it – approaches not tied down by preconceptions of technical rectitude. The flux and distinction between these modalities of approach are used to activate my work by opening new questions for exploration. In particular, the project explores how chance events and extemporaneous movements generate possibilities that are unconstrained by disciplinary conventions, languages, processes or techniques. The capacity of happenstance to suggest possibilities and nuanced difference is explored as the focus for activation of a creative impetus, as I negotiate a path between correctness and opportunism, seeking a vitality for my practice
