KIP GRESHAM: THE ART OF COLLABORATION

Fri 1 March - Sun 19 May

THE HEONG GALLERY

‘The day to day reality is one of dirty hands, bad backs, beautiful colours, seductive papers and, above all surprises from the artists, those magicians. That's why one does this stuff; This Is Important.’

Ever since he co-founded the Manchester Print Workshop in 1975, Master Printer Kip Gresham has been helping artists realise their visions in the medium of print. The Art of Collaboration celebrates over 40 years of artistic partnerships with giants of the British and international art world, featuring work by 21 Royal Academicians. From the collages of Eduardo Paolozzi and Peter Blake, to the graphic approaches of Elisabeth Frink and Paula Rego, Kip Gresham is an interpreter of artists’ vocabularies, helping them to create works that are unmistakably theirs, in a timeless medium. Kip Gresham’s studio history is also a journey of collaboration with leading printmakers and technological experts, which continues today at the The Print Studio, Cambridge.
