WAYOUT: WITH PRINT

WayOut: with Print evolved from a previous hybrid printmaking exhibition at Maitland Regional Art Gallery in 2020 that in its own way was perceived as “way out”.
In WayOut: with Print, this group of eight artists investigates notions of contemporary printmaking. The artists’ work selected here is by no means the complete breadth of the practice, it is merely a sprinkle.
Each of the artists were selected because of their multi-disciplinary studio practices, with print as well as other media and each artist has a background within the tradition of editioning prints and the ability to work within the canon of those traditions. What is important within WayOut: with Print is that the artists also expand, stretch and disrupt how we traditionally see printmaking. This is a break-away group pushing the boundaries of printmaking, experi- menting and questioning those studio-based traditions. They are all freeing themselves from the traditions within the canon of art that sees print as an adjunct and extension of other art forms.
