Bridgeman Editions is proud to present Multiples, a group exhibition of limited edition prints by both emerging and established contemporary artists. Exploring the different techniques of printmaking from silkscreens, etchings, linocuts to lithography and woodcuts.
Throughout the history of art printmaking has been a fundamental discipline of artistic practice, from Turner to Hogarth, Durer to Goya and Warhol to Hockney – printmaking has made art accessible. Many forms of printmaking involve drawing or painting onto a plate to produce a matrix and then producing prints from that matrix by mechanical processes.This might suggest that such forms of printmaking lack artistic significance independent of drawing and painting. In today’s digital age the importance of printmaking as an art form is indisputable, and this exhibition aims to highlight the beauty in printmaking in all its different guises.
