Now Play This

The annual games festival returns to Somerset House for it’s biggest edition ever. We were invited to the private view to explore the interactive games and experimental design that they had on show.

Now Play This

Somerset House

6th – 14th April 2019

 

This years exhibition focuses on community, the interaction between players and how this feeds into the creative process of some of the most inventive games. Visitors to the festival are invited to play on all of the thought provoking games on display as well as try their hands at creating their own video game that can be played by others.

Some of our favourite games included Octopad, a reimagined 1980’s game which turns a one player game into a collaborative experience with eight different controllers with a button each, encouraging a team effort from all of the players. As well as an installation by We Throw Stitches which sees players battle it out in the ‘ultimate reaction test’ at the their table of changing neon lights. For those that want less screen time in their lives there is also a board game lounge, a zine lounge and two outdoor interactive installations in the courtyard.

Games created by festival visitors and a trip down memory lane with Wrong Box by Molly Soda.

 

Amongst the competitive action there are many talks and workshops across the week long festival that are well worth checking out. Now Play This runs as part of London Games Festival so if you’re in the capital make sure you take a look!

Sequentially installed across three galleries, this exhibition presents an entire new body of work by Royal Academician Phyllida Barlow.

_____

PHYLLIDA BARLOW

cul-de-sac

Royal Academy of Arts

23rd Feb – 23rd June 2019

______

Barlow’s early work responded to the Modernist sculpture that had emerged in Britain and Europe in the 1950s and early 1960s. As her practice evolved, she took against its weighty formalism and monumentalism, sensing an imposed morality and gravitated towards Arte Povera in Europe and sculptural developments in the USA.

Barlow continues to explore much of the spirit of these more fragile, but nonetheless confident formal sculptural statements in her own work.

By producing large-scale works and installations from everyday, industrial materials and expedient fabrication processes, Barlow challenges the ideas of monumentally and authority associated with traditional sculptural materials and methods.

Space is one of the starting points for Barlow, she refers to it as the ‘protagonist’ of the work she creates to inhabit it. Not site specific as such, the installations development is however dependent in some part on her response to a particular settings and the to volume and limitations it presents.

This exhibition of Barlow’s work is possibly one of my favourites to date. I was fortunate to see her work at the Venice Biennale in 2017 and its brutal colours and forms in a much darker space felt oppressive and uncomfortable, perhaps that was her intention. However this collection of sculptures feels to me much more coherent and well executed. Perhaps being at home in the RA suits her well. It certainly suits the sculptures and whilst its a small collation one could easily spend hours in the space engaging with the sculptures and as Barlow herself says ‘sculpture needs to be given time, you need to just wait with it and become the moving object that it instant so this action between the still and the moving is incredibly demanding for all.’

Phyllida Barlow is on the at Royal Academy until 23rd June and its well worth a visit if you are near by. Also currently running are the Bill Viola and Renaissance Nudes so give yourself plenty of time to see all three exhibitions.

On Monday 25th March we were invited to a preview of the Van Gogh exhibition at Tate Britain. The EY EXHIBITION : VAN GOGH AND BRITAIN is the eighth ground-breaking exhibition supported through the EY Tate Arts partnership.

______

27th March – 11 August 2019

Tate Britain

Open Daily 10.00 – 18.00

______

The exhibition is the first major event to explore the impact of British culture on Van Gogh as well as the legacy of his art in the works of British painters.  The exhibition also explores both how Van Gogh was inspired by British art, literature and culture throughout his career and how he in turn inspired British artists, from Vanessa Bell to Francis Bacon.

Bringing together the largest group of Van Gogh paintings shown in the UK for nearly a decade, the exhibition includes over 50 works by the artist from public and private collections around the world.

Aside from being a large collection of works the exhibition amazingly works its way through a side of Van Gogh that was central to creating his works, his mental health. During the course of his life he battled with mental illness and spent many years within a psychiatric unit. During our curators tour Michel Drieseen, from EY, spoke of how ket to the success of the exhibition is the discussion of dignity and humanity which Van Gogh applies to his subject. Theres always a sense of affection in his portraits and the places he studies. This is where i think the exhibition comes into its own, exploring Van Gogh’s personal struggles and allowing the visitor to talk openly about mental health and how in the 21st century we bring normality and encourage discussion around this issue. The language used on the walls of the exhibition is a far cry from the usual wordy type we see so often in gallery spaces, this in itself feels inclusive and feels like a huge effort has been made to talk and provide a space even within the very walls of the gallery for conversations in a safe comfortable place. And what better place to be to do so, surrounded by some of the great works by the master himself.

If you have time spend an afternoon walking and exploring the rooms of Tate Britain, its most certainly one of their most successful exhibitions in many ways. We loved it.

 

William Crozier Flowers Gallery

We spent our Friday morning at Flowers Gallery exploring the amazing work of William Crozier. The first UK exhibition showing Crozier’s screen prints; the show is devoted to rarely seen prints produced between 1994 – 2010. William Crozier Flowers Gallery

 

William Croziers energetic and vibrant prints explore landscapes and imagined still lifes through bold patterns and textures. Italian and English landscapes merge in to one through his use of tropical, Mediterranean hues.

 

William Crozier Flowers Gallery

From the 1990’s onwards Crozier has worked with expert printers in both Dublin and Verona, Italy in a collaborative process to bring his paintings to life through the medium of screen print.

William Crozier Flowers Gallery

The amazing, vivid colours and painterly textures that can be achieved through the screen printing process replicate William Croziers energetic painting marks.

The exhibition is a great example of how screen printing can be used to recreate other processes and explores a wide variety of techniques. It’s only on for one more week so make sure you don’t miss out!

Here at Print Club we always want to give you the inside scoop, we recently visited the House of Illustration’s latest exhibition of pop artist, social activist and nun, Corita Kent, ‘Power Up’. This is an exhibition you don’t want to miss! The show is filled to the brim with vibrancy, colour and joyousness even though the pieces within the exhibition deal with controversial topics and Corita Kent provided a new perspective on topics such as racism, misogyny and war.


Location: House of Illustration, Kings Cross
Running until 12th May 2019
Opening Hours:
Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 5.30pm
Sunday 11am – 5.30pm

Designed by the acclaimed Fraser Muggeridge studio, the exhibition will feature 70 screen prints showing the evolution of Corita’s work.

In the early 1960s she juxtaposed religious texts with advertising slogans, capturing the clamour and commercialism of LA’s post-WWII financial boom. Her 1965 screenprint power up derived from a gasoline advert, while her 1967 work come alive appropriated the iconic Pepsi-Cola slogan as an exuberant affirmation. Corita said of LA, “Up and down the highways we see words…that read almost like contemporary translations of the psalms for us to be singing on our way.” However, her 1964 print in homage to Mary, the juiciest tomato of all, was regarded as sacrilege by the church and banned from being displayed.

In the late 1960s Corita increasingly used art as protest against racism, misogyny, poverty and war. Working within the confines of America’s most conservative diocese, her voice was hugely influential in the country’s anti-authority shift, capturing the spirit of the anti-Vietnam war movement, civil rights movement and feminism. Her 1969 screenprints layered documentary material from LifeNewsweek and Time magazines – Corita’s “contemporary manuals of contemplation” – with song lyrics, poetry and quotes set against psychedelic day-glo colours. These include 1969’s if i, promoting compassion in the face of violence after Martin Luther King’s assassination.


Corita Kent, born Frances Elizabeth Kent and also known as Sister Mary Corita Kent, was an American Roman Catholic religious sister, artist, and educator. She worked almost exclusively with silkscreen, also known as serigraphy, pushing back the limitations of the two-dimensional medium by the development of innovative methods. Kent’s emphasis on printing was partially due to her wish for democratic outreach, as she wished for affordable art for the masses.Her artwork, with its messages of love and peace, was particularly popular during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s.


 

Tracey Emin White Cube Gallery

 

We headed to the opening of a Fortnight of Tears by Tracey Emin at the White Cube.  The show encompasses the entire gallery and this major exhibition includes sculpture, painting, photography and video. There’s also an intimate look at Emins’ personal diaries and sketchbooks, giving a deep look into the artists emotive larger scale pieces.

 

Tracey Emin

 

White Cube Gallery

6th February – 7th April 2019

In her new paintings Tracey Emin explores the human form and emotions of loss, anxiety and physical trauma through energetic mark making and a subdued palette. Deep red blood stain tones and muted pinks show the connection between birth and death as she reflects on powerful events from her past .

 

Tracey Emin

Tracey Emin White Cube

 

The female form is also celebrated through large bronze sculptures such as The Mother and two other sculptures domineering the main gallery. The elongated limbs and distorted figures resemble the same fluid energy of her canvas paintings and there is an element of passion and angst within the pieces. The exhibition also shows an intimate look into her sketchbooks and diaries, with drawings and anecdotes from her archives.

 

 

 

Tracey Emin

 

This exhibition is a truly in depth exploration of Tracey Emins work and we highly recommend taking a trip South of the river to see it.

A Fortnight of Tears is on display at the White Cube in Bermondsey until the 7th of April 2019.

Anni-Albers

We recently took a trip to the Tate Modern to explore the amazing new exhibition showcasing the work of Anni Albers. As the first major exhibition of her work in the UK the extensive collection explores the career of the Bauhaus artist from her well known weavings to unseen screen prints and original paintings.

Albers studied at the famous Bauhaus school in Weinmar, before moving to America with her husband Josef and studying at the experimental Black Mountain College. A pioneer in textile design she explored the relationship between functionality and aesthetic and was heavily inspired by grid like architectural forms. She looked to explore a new modern language through a traditional craft process.

Anni Albers Tate Modern

The retrospective exhibition shows a lot of the work made throughout her time in the Bauhaus As well as Albers personal projects the exhibition also shows her more commercial textiles including fabrics for hotels and the drapes for the Rockefella’s guest house. There is also an amazing collection of antique textiles from around the world and you can see the influence of the couples travels on her creations.

 

 

The exhibition runs until January 27th 2019.

Tickets and more information can be found here.

Since then Charlie has been working freelance as an illustrator and designer for such clients as Courtney Barnett, Paper & Cloth Design Studio, and Kindred Agency.

Charlie’s work itself is largely a selfish mash-up of everything he loves. Ephemera, crappy films, pulp novels, and Americana, which are all drawn upon regularly to influence and inform the illustrations that he creates.

Award winning architect Kody Kato has pushed the limits of GF Smith’s new Japanese paper collection in this amazing installation. We were lucky enough to meet the designer himself as he explained the gravity defying exhibit, constructed from over 5,500 sheets of ‘Takeo’ paper. Using traditional Sonobe origami techniques the sculpture took 6 days to install and will transform over time as the paper stretches and shifts.

Make sure you book an appointment at GF Smith’s London show space by the end of June to catch this intriguing exhibition and explore their vast paper collection whilst you are there. You can also practice your paper aeroplane making skills and try to make it on to the Perfect Plane leader board (our skills definitely need improving).

Artist’s featured in the show:

David Shand trained as a graphic designer and has worked in design and illustration for the last 20 years. David works primarly in screenprint and collage, often combining the two to create editions and one off pieces. David has sold at Atom Gallery, Studio 73, Affordable Artfair and the Druck Berlin Screenprint Festival.

David uses old posters from the underground as a starting point for his work, finding himself drawn to their decaying images and viewing them in an abstract, playful way.  David is known for his subverted imagery of torn and distressed posters, with his work being a visual exolpration of how advertising loses its commercial message through time and decay and how new meanings emerge.

Isabella Cotier

Isabella Cotier graduated from London College of Fashion studying Illustration and has been freelancing ever since. Some of her clients include H&M, Fortnum and Mason, Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood. Isabella grew up in Florence, Italy where she experienced a more traditional way of drawing.

Isabella’s main interest is portraying people through expressive and unrestricted lines, playing on her impulsivity and celebrating the imperfections in her work. The majority of Isabella’s work is based on life drawing sessions where she captures a model’s presence with lines and expression, often developing this further from the impression they’ve left.

Featured Artists in the show:

David Shand Poster Girl

‘Poster Girl’ // Edition of 50, £85

_________________________________________________________________

David Shand is best known for his subverted imagery of torn and decayed posters. His work explores how visual advertising loses its commercial message through time and decay and how new pleasing imagery and meanings emerge.

“I found myself drawn to old posters on the underground and I began photographing them. I found something very appealing about how these carefully crafted posters had become unshackled from what they were selling and their imagery had become random, abstract and playful.”

David works in screenprint and collage and often combines both for editions and one-off works. He has sold his work through Printclub, Atom Gallery, Studio 73, East End prints, The London Affordable Artfair and the Druck Berlin Screenprint Festival. David trained as a graphic designer and has worked in design and illustration in London for 20 years.

Since graduating from the London College of Fashion with a BA in Illustration, Isabella has been freelancing as an illustrator. Growing up in Florence, Italy she was surrounded by and taught a more traditional way of drawing. Some of her clients have included H&M, Fortnum and Mason, Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood.

“My main point of interest is portraying people through expressive, unrestricted line. I want my drawings to remain loose. With the ubiquity of technology and today’s tendencies toward Photoshopping and over editing, I like to play on my impulsivity, and never shy away from imperfections. I draw from life when and where ever I can, whether at live concerts or theatre productions, movement and performance is a theme I will come back to time and again.”

“At the moment I am working on a project where I invite friends and strangers to my studio to be drawn. During the visits I quickly create a dozen or so drawings to capture their presence in line. I then work further to develop the drawings once the model has left and depend on my memory and the drawings for reference. It’s interesting to see what the memory chooses to remember about a person…”

Blisters is back for its 6th edition!

Our long-awaited Blisters show is back after 3 years and this year it’s set to be bigger and better! The show will coincide with the very exciting launch of Print Club London’s first book ‘Screen Printing the Ultimate Guide – From Sketchbook to Squeegee’ published with Thames & Hudson.

This Year it’s …

Blisters - The Paperback Edition Print Club London 2017

It’s based on BOOKS and it’s an entirely hand-pulled screen printed show!

Grab inspiration from your favourite book, favourite author or even a favourite line from an iconic book.

The show is going to be HUGE as the artists included in our book have created work exclusively for it and each limited edition piece will be launched at our Blisters Show! (Have your work exhibited alongside the likes of Ben Eine, Rob Ryan, Kate Gibb, Steve Wilson and many, many more!)

We are now open for submissions and want to get the word out there to any illustrators/aspiring artists who want to take part.



// T H E   B R I E F //

ONE. Submit a poster in your own style inspired by your favourite book, favourite author or even a favourite line from an iconic book

TWO. The catch is that, you cannot use the name of the book or author! Use of other text is allowed of course, but this should stand alone as an image/scene/typography

THREE. Most importantly, your work must be COMPLETELY new and original for this project and never seen before! We will not accept any submissions that are displayed anywhere else, including personal blog or portfolio.

FOUR. The artwork specification – It needs to be in B2 format (500 x 700mm) but, can be portrait or landscape

FIVE. When sending the low-res file please ensure it’s save ‘YourName.jpeg’ and state in your email the book/quote/author your design is inspired by

Submissions must be sent as a low-res .jpeg file to [email protected] and the official deadline is Friday 5th May 2017



// P R O D U C I N G   Y O U R   S C R E E N   P R I N T S //

We can offer free use of our studio to successful submissions to print their own work but, if you aren’t printing yourself do be aware that the more colours you choose the more expensive it is to produce.

In previous Year’s we always had 40 artists exhibiting but as we promised a bigger and better show, 2017 Blisters show will be full to the brim with 50 artists, each with a 50 edition and signed screen prints selling for £50 a pop!

The idea is that whether you are just out of college, up and coming or a well-known artist, everyone is on the same level platform and the prints speak for themselves.

Our aim is to take affordable art prints to a wider demographic, encouraging buyers to invest in original artwork

Artists who have taken part in our Blisters show before include: Ben Eine, Jamie Reid, Mr Bingo, Pure Evil, Peter Stitson, Anthony Burrill, Hattie Stewart, Kate Moross, James Joyce, Clifford Richards, Mike Perry, Ryca and many, many more!

// F A Q s //

Q: If I have book artwork that I’ve used for previous projects, can I reprint this? A: The artwork for your submission should be original. If there are elements from previous projects this is fine but the submission should appear to be new as a whole.

Q: Does the “poster” need to contain text or type? A: No, this is up to you. “Poster” is the format size paper and the term we use to describe this. You can either:

ONE. Create artwork that is composed of an illustration or design inspired by a book, author(s) or line from a book

TWO. Submit an entry composed entirely of a typographic design (as long as it does not mention the book title/authors name/characters name

THREE. Mix the two!

Q: If I have several designs, can I submit more than one? A: You can submit as many ideas as you like!

Q: When the artwork is printed and signed, do we also need to put a title to it? For example; The book title, author name or not, as it might give the game away? A: We haven’t decided on this yet. Just email us your entries and let us know your inspiration for the artwork!

Q: How much of money for the print goes to the artist? A: It’s a 50/50 split between the artist and Print Club London. The artist will receive 50% commission as will Print Club London

Q: What happens to prints, which remain unsold? A: All prints are sold via Print Club London on our online gallery after the show.

Q: Do they remain the property of the artist or of London Print Club? A: They’re owned by the artist/designer, but we retain the right to be the only seller of these prints as they are from a show we have curated.

Q: If ownership remains with the artist, can the artist resell them elsewhere – for example, through independent shops? A: No, the prints can only be sold via Print Club London

Q: If the artist is not producing the prints themselves will Print Club be producing them? A: The artists are liable for the printing the work. They can use our studios for free if they know how to print! If artists are unable to print, they can ask Tuckshop our bespoke printing service who will offer a discount for all Blisters artists. This Year we’re sponsored by G.F Smith who are supplying all the paper for the show. 

Q: Who owns the rights to the image? A: Artists always own the rights to their work. However a rule of Blisters is that the work is exclusive to Print Club London and cannot be reproduced into another screen print or gicleé print.
