Contemporary printmaking artists, working with new ideas and processes pushing the boundaries of traditional printmaking practice in a gallery setting. The mediums used by these artists range from new variations on traditional intaglio and relief techniques, to digital video projections.
Laura Castell is one of 13 artists participating in Neoteric Print at Umbrella Studio from 30 September to 6 November 2011.
While planning for this exhibition I titled the exhibition to be quite open to interpretation. I did not want to be descriptive and set a theme that directed each artist away from their current practice. I feel it is quite important to keep true to your own concepts and aesthetic ideas when exhibiting in a group exhibition.
neoteric - Used to describe a person, especially an author, it means one belongs to modern/recent times—but it might also refer to a person having a modern outlook or new ideas; when used of things, it indicates that they are modern, new, or recent.
