Leader, Elaine

Bird House

Bird House

‘Through mark making, washes, photographic, drawn images and stains I am attempting to leave traces, or unearth histories’. The etching and carborundum prints are based on documents and notes found in the archives of the National Library. Emerging from their layers of grey and earthy tones are fragmentary details referencing aspects of the Collection, and relate to themes such as mapping and passing, and allude to a sense of history that is both personal and universal’.

The Office of Public Works recently commissioned Leader for the National Library of Ireland. The set of prints comprised of a series of large-scale etchings using interconnected images containing maps, archaeological references, language, text and history. These delicate images evoke the fragility, heritage and knowledge of the Collection. The etching and carborundum prints are based on documents and notes found in the archives of the National Library. Emerging from their layers of grey and earthy tones are fragmentary details referencing aspects of the Collection, and relate to themes such as mapping and passing, and allude to a sense of history that is both personal and universal. These works were exhibited recently in The Ashford Gallery, RHA, along with a smaller series of works entitled ‘Pages’. Her work is represented in many of the significant Collections including RHA Collection, KPMG, Allied Irish Banks, DIT, Rohcon Ltd, Hilton Hotel, Jury’s Hotel Group, Office of Public Works, Dublin Castle and Government Buildings.

Freddy

 

Maev was born in Galway, 1979. Having studied printmaking at the National College of Art and Design and receiving the first ever Graphic Studio Graduate Award, Maev joined the Graphic Studio Dublin in 2002. Her focus has remained on drawing and printmaking.

International exhibitions include, La Biennale International d’estampe de Trois Rivieres, Quebec, Canada 2005, V International Biennial of Drawing, Pilsen, Czech Republic 2006 and the 4th International Engraving Biennial of Duoro, Portugal 2007.

She regularly exhibits in selected Graphic Studio shows, notably in The Garden of Earthly Delights in the Chester Beatty Library, Revelation in the National Gallery of Ireland and Na granicy/Where Borders Meet in Poland.

For the exhibition Is This Real with Yoko Akino at The Graphic Studio Gallery in 2008 Maevs aim was to create a series of prints that, together, would behave in much the same way as words do in a poem. So that, not always coherently linked but nonetheless emotionally linked, a series of images becomes a train of thought: a visual poem.

The driving force of Maevs art is her fascination with the complex way we communicate as humans, from our facial expressions and body language to our unique storytelling abilities.

At present her work delves into our relationship with the natural world and how we demystify it in order to better embrace it. The images that Maev makes touch on the essential need to communicate by telling stories. They observe people, life and the world that surrounds us. It is a way of understanding our environment or making it less alien to us.

Her prints are stories without narrative. They are in the spirit of cave paintings, glimpses into a place where the natural world has grazed our subconscious.

Leyden, Deirdre

Born in Ireland, and living in the UK since 1987 to complete the Foundation Course in Art & Design at the University of Ulster, Deirdre went on to become a Fine Art graduate from Falmouth School of Art in 1991 with an M.A. in Fine Art Printmaking from Chelsea School of Art in 1992.  Deirdre has work in several private collections and has had group and solo exhibitions. After working in a printmaking editioning studio for several years Deirdre joined ACAVA Studios London where she now works from her own printmaking and painting studio.

Statement:

I have always been drawn to making both landscape and seascape pieces and use multi plate copper etching with the layering effects of aquatint and line to make my work. I sometimes return to the same place and always see something new to inspire me. From the aqua colours of the Cornish sea to the troubled skies of the West of Ireland on a stormy day; I try to capture a fleeting moment – either drawing directly onto the plate, from sketches made on the spot or photographs taken which I then use in the studio to make my work.

My work alternates between these atmospheric multi plate etchings to abstract ‘Hoard’ pieces using gold and copper leaf; inspired by archaeological digs – referencing a different imagined landscape.

Likely, Rachel

Sunflower Speaker

Sunflower Speaker

 Rachel seeks to explore the marrying of lithography and found material in her work. Using lithographs as a starting point, she responds to these drawings, combining them with objects to create playful incidents, which relate one to another. Often the drawings form the bedrock which house the very specific and deliberate placing of found objects, creating an interplay between these objects/materials and the organic line and marks of lithography. Likely often uses this process as an approach to developing her drawings further, manipulating and tweaking the images, adding a further point of curiosity. Many of Likely’s works are playful and mischievous as a way of seducing the viewer and drawing them in, catching them with visual hooks.

Rachel Likely is an artist from Leitrim working in Dublin. She graduated from NCAD in 2011 with a BA in Fine Art and became a member of Black Church Print Studio in 2012, where she specialises in lithography. Her work is part of the AXA insurance collection and she has also exhibited in group exhibitions in KT Contemporary, Dublin, The Sarah Walker Gallery, Cork and the Royal Ulster Academy of the Arts, Belfast.

Lipstein, Daniel

Daniel Lipstein, etching, aquatint

Compassion

 

Daniel Lipstein is a print maker and painter.   He graduated with Masters of Fine Art from the Fine Art Print faculty of the National College of Art and Design Dublin in 2009.  He won several awards such as the first prize at the multidisciplinary print making exhibition at Galway Arts Center, Impressions, 2010.

As a print-maker Daniel creates mainly multi-plates etching and aquatint works of small, medium and large scale.  His compositions are a mixture of realistic observations and imagination.   He often achieves such connection between, or marriage of realism and imagination by consulting atmospheres and data from his dreams and from photographs that he takes.  In this way Daniel has developed a certain visual language that also uses themes and symbols, integral to his work both as a print maker and as a painter.

In his etchings and aquatints, lithographs, linocut and dry-point works there is a strong emphasis on the energy, flow and direction of the marks, and on a complete harmony and unity between the marks, pigments and the subject matter of the compositions.

Because the process of print making is more lengthy and somewhat more physically demanding than that of painting, Daniel’s marks and use of pigments as a print maker are often informed by the immediacy and the power of his use of mediums as a painter.  Similarly his work as a print maker also informs and deepens his understanding of painting and his ability as a painter.  In the medium of etching in hard ground and sugar lifting aquatint, Daniel has developed methods by which the etching process intensifies the power of the initial marks.
