Invitation – Northern Irish Printmakers

From the press release.

Hello dear Friend of Lessedra,

Janet Preston, the Curator:

I am delighted to introduce this exhibition of prints made in Northern Ireland from the Printmaking Workshop in The University of Ulster, Seacourt Print Workshop and Belfast Print Workshop. There is work here that is by artists who work exclusively with printmaking and there is work by artists who come to print as their second language.  As an educator in Fine Art at The University of Ulster I felt that it was important to include young recent graduates in this show.  Early career opportunities such as this show set a benchmark for the younger students and introduce them to a rhythm of international life, competition, achievement, encouragement and cooperation outside of our island of Ireland.

Bulgaria has exited from an imperial power to an autonomous society.  I see this juxtaposed with the changes in Northern Ireland.  As a nation of people they discuss “The Change” as much as we discuss “The Troubles”.  Dialogue and debate is being investigated through this exhibition.  Working methodologies for the selection of work for this exhibition are on the following themes:
· Art and Conflict
· Landscape and Contested Spaces
· Archive and Documentation
· Literature/Text

This exhibition I feel is a punctuation point in a continuum: I look forward to further projects, with Georgi Kolev.

Thank you for your kind attention.

With my very best wishes from Sofia

Yours Georgi
