Black Church Process
Black Church Process is a new Studio initiative that invites leading art practitioners from other art disciplines to work with the resources of the print studio. Over 2012/13 three pilot projects are being run, all of which have been financed through our fundraising project with Fundit. These projects involve Irish contemporary artists Brian Fay, Damien Flood, and Jesse Jones, all principal figures within their individual fields of drawing, painting and filmmaking.
This programme offers an insight into the potential of printmaking while promoting and positioning it within contemporary art practice. The projects are intended to be an exploratory process, initiated by the artist's vision, and facilitated by the skills and experience of a dedicated printmaking team of master printmakers and print coordinators. Artists are encouraged to explore the various possibilities that printmaking present to them. The collaboration between artist and studio aims to give the practitioner a comprehensive understanding of the processes and concepts of this art form and to lead to new and exciting directions in their practice.
Special thanks to all of our sponsors for their support of this initiative.
