‘My work has its origins in where I am – my surroundings, my garden. It is inspired by the natural world – its beauty, its hospitality, its contrasts, its surprises. Art has the power to make one see things in a new light – to rediscover the beauty of the everyday – a flower, a leaf. I have learnt that what I have not drawn, I have never really seen. When I draw an ordinary thing I realize how extraordinary it truly is. Colour is another overriding element of a work for me. Strong colour, with slight pigment changes are used to create mood. I am constantly engaged with the effects of light and shade. The appeal of printmaking is that the end result is less predictable than painting. The excitement of peeling back the paper and seeing the image is very intoxicating and I was instantly hooked. I work in a close-up realist mode often characterized by meticulous attention to detail. Savoring my subject matter I try to reveal the beauty and fascination of the ordinary and present each image as a jewel to be treasured’.

Lynn, Bob

Bob Lynn, monoprint

Passage East

Born in Scotland in 1940, Bob Lynn studied art at the Edinburgh College of Art. Since then he has travelled, studied and worked in London, Poland and Ireland. In 1980 he settled in Co.Wicklow. Wicklow has given him a rich store of subject matter, which he has drawn on for many years.

‘Colour, shape and draughtsmanship have always been the main concerns with my work regardless of the medium involved, be it oils or printmaking. The underlying abstraction is like the foundations to any building without which everything would collapse. If these elements are working harmoniously then the content and expression should exist automatically creating something of sustenance, substance and inspiration. I work in both oil and prints (carborundum and monoprint) and find that one discipline tends to help the other when a particular problem arises concerning composition or colour etc. Also one medium quite often “gives birth” to another idea in the other medium. My choice of monoprint and carborundum is because they are the closest printing methods to oil painting without too much reliance on complicated techniques.’

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.
