James Hugonin, Binary Rhythm (indigo) and Binary Rhythm (red). A 42 colour diptych printed in 80 press runs. 

We completed the edition on January 4 after nearly 2 months on the press.

The prints are published by and available from Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh. 

These are a couple of work-in-progress shots.

Stephen Chambers: Installation shots of ‘The Big Country’.

This is what we made with Stephen between June and September.

As Paul Huxley says in the introduction to the catalogue “Artists sometimes reach a point in their lives when they must attempt a great work ….. that sums up their experience of the world from where they stand at that moment”. Well, here it is and, even though he would not say it for himself, it is magnificent. 

Part 6 of the Royal Academy Artists’ Laboratory series.

Currently on show at the R.A. and continues until December 2nd.

It is a screenprint on 78 sheets, each 56 x 76cm. Printed on Somerset T.P. 300gsm.

Published by the artist in an edition of 6 with 4 artist’s proofs.

The exhibition includes 'Trouble Meets Trouble’, a big group of etchings with chine colle and the artist’s book 'Portrait of a pre-caffeinated mind’.  

A catalogue with an insightful essay by Rod Mengham is available.

Here is one of the video Jonas Grimas has made documenting the making of Stephen Chambers ‘The Big Country.’ This film was shot in our studio the other week.

Stephen Chambers, The Big Country.


We are currently working on a 70 sheet print with Stephen. It is being billed as ‘the biggest print ever’, and it quite possibly is just that.

It is destined for exhibition at The Royal Academy in October.

Jonas Grimas has been filming the work’s progress in Stephen’s London studio. He has posted a number of short films on vimeo and youtube and the links are below.

We will be posting more about this piece when we get nearer to the release date.

Dartmoor Arts

We’ll be running a course at Dartmoor Arts again this year, 22 -28 July.

Happily our course is already over-subscribed, however, there are many other great things happening and there are still places available.

Apart from the courses, all of which are run by fantastic tutors, there are evening events and talks. The location, in the heart of Dartmoor, is really special.

If you are interested, have a look at Dartmoor arts website where there’s plenty of information.

We are currently working on a new 2 piece print for James Hugonin. These shots show the assembling of the colour boxes for the image. Four files down, only Fourteen to go! 

  We have just completed three editions for John Carter, two screenprints (of which this is one) and a yellow relief print from a laser-cut matrix.
