Critical Mass: Printmaking Beyond the Edge

Front Cover
A&C Black, Aug 15, 2010 - Art - 160 pages

This exciting new book showcases the work of a very diverse selection
of 52 artists from 28 countries, against a spectrum of the concerns
that inform the role and function of art in the increasingly
technological global society. The mediums used by these artists range
from new variations on traditional intaglio and relief techniques, to
extreme forms of digital techniques, including time-based forms such as
film and multi-media presentation. Printmaking continues to evolve as
artists develop the traditional
techniques and experiment with new techniques and materials. In recent
years the boundaries between the once distinct fields of the visual
arts have become blurred, and growing numbers of artists now
incorporate printmaking techniques within their practice. This book
provides a broad-ranging and challenging source of information on the
most exciting cutting edge developments in international printmaking,
which will be of value to students, professional artists and all those
with an interest in the contemporary visual arts
