Publisher Comments:

Printmaking: A Contemporary Perspective is a solid overview of current work in this exciting area, taking into account the history and the different techniques available for artists working today. Using the work of contemporary artists, Printmaking tells the story of the progression of this art form and highlights the most important technological advances and influential artists.

Printmaking is split into sections including: Reworking Traditions; Painterly Approaches; the Hybrid Print; Political Imperatives; the Sculptors Print; Installation and Expanded Print; and New Technology. Each section discusses the origin of print styles, early artists, and contemporary artists working with print today. The various methods of printing, such as monoprinting, linocut and screen-printing, through to etching and lithography are discussed throughout these sections in relation to the artists that work with them.

Exploring contemporary approaches to this ever-growing medium, Printmaking discusses the work of some of the most exciting artists working in the field today. Artists featured include Richard Hamilton, Damien Hirst, Roni Horn, Masami Teraoka, Kara Walker, Oscar Munos, Willie Cole, Banksy and Brooklyn based Faile Collective. The work of influential artists in the field throughout history are also included, such as Rembrandt, Goya, Degas, Picasso, Paula Rego, and George Baselitz, to show the effect their work has had on a younger generation of artists.

Synopsis:

Printmaking: A Contemporary Perspective provides a comprehensive overview of printmaking in all its forms, from seventh century woodcuts to the most recent developments in digital technologies and the ways these are continuing to expand. Clearly organized, the book covers the history and developments of various printmaking techniques, including Relief Printing, Intaglio, Lithography, Screenprinting and Digital Print. Printmaking: A Contemporary Perspective then goes on to feature the work of contemporary artists from around the world working with print, covering topics as varied as hybrid printmaking techniques and practices, and the political imperatives informing the work of artists and printmaking studios. Generously illustrated throughout, Printmaking: A Contemporary Perspective is an up-to-date and essential survey for anyone interested in printmaking and contemporary fine art practice.
