Chapters
‘This display showcases the diverse and inventive work of Royal Academician Stephen Chambers. Bringing together multiple series, Chapters is as much about concentrated stages of artistic process as it is an eclectic representation of collaboration in print. Produced using different techniques, in tandem with several master print studios, the resulting sets demonstrate a spectrum of the visual possibilities within the medium of printmaking, whilst retaining the strong narrative of Chambers’ work.’ RA

‘Each set begins with an idea, is made in a compressed period of time and once concluded, abandoned. Consequently, each set represents a moment and a collaboration. Each having its own identity. I, as their maker, am the only constant. The results: chapters.’ SC

New screenprint supports apprentice training at The Print Studio, Cambridge

Stephen has recently worked on a new screenprint called ‘Nettle’ with Kip Gresham, Alan Grabham and Callum Rose at the internationally renowned Print Studio in Cambridge. It will be part of a portfolio of five prints alongside work by Willard Boepple, Nigel Hall, Peter Randall-Page and Alison Wilding.

Income from the sale of the portfolios will be used to support the training of Callum Rose, the studio’s new apprentice. The studio Master Printer, Kip Gresham, plans to instruct him in the coming years and is keen to pass on his experience. After almost 50 years as a fine art print maker, there is much technical, collaborative and aesthetic skill to impart. Callum represents a new generation of printmakers who might continue to innovate and excel. The work in the portfolio is a testament to his considerable ability.

Please contact info@theprintstudio.co.uk to express interest or request further details.

 

I’m ready for my close-up

The film is released on 20 May, 2022 and Alex describes it as ‘a folk horror’.
