Item Type: Artefact
Creators: Minott, P
Abstract: Experiments in 2015, using vector based drawing and laser cut plastic, resulted in the creation of reusable matrices which could be inked and assembled in infinite permutations to generate large scale monoprints using multiple colours without complex registration and maintaining crisp edged juxtaposition of clean bold shapes. Aligning with the modernist sensibility in his printmaking practice, Minott adopted this method to create a new series of prints, entitled Pretty Abstract, which were exhibited at the Black Swan Gallery, Frome in 2016. This led to a workshop at the Xi'an Academy of Fine Arts in China, where the method was tested with a new set of shapes in response to a different graphic culture. These were exhibited at the Xi'an International Printmaking Conference in 2017. This Collection comprises a multi-component output with contextualising information, documenting the series of prints created by Paul Minott, exhibited in 2016 and 2017, as primary outputs. Contextualising information includes a 300-word statement, research timeline, and research questions, as well as documentation of methods and processes involved in the creation of this new approach to printmaking practice.
