Matrix: Graphic Studio Gallery
9th December 2010 – 29 January 2011
Matrix in printmaking terms means the printing surface i.e. the stone, metal, wood etc. Matrix is also understood in mathematical terms as a rectangular array of quantities, in biological terms as the substance between cells, and in environmental terms as a material in which something develops. This theme brings together art and science, and in turn, the evolutionary and transitional nature of printmaking.
Over fifty gallery artists and studio members have responded to the theme of Matrix, producing a variety of work including etching, lithography and screenprint.
