TWO NEW ARTISTS to join Prism's international exchange project!

NORMAN MCBEATH

The noted Scottish artist Norman McBeath is best known for his remarkable photographs of the famous and powerful, with fifty portraits at the National Portrait Galleries of London and Edinburgh.

But he is also a fine exponent of the regrettably now uncommon art of photogravure. We are delighted to be able to show his examples of this technique alongside the many different processes we elucidate in our exhibitions, and we are even more delighted to be showing the expressive work of this important Scottish creative artist whose poetic sensitivity to people and places is both sophisticated and deeply moving.

SUMI PERERA

We are delighted to announce that the Sri Lankan-born British artist Sumi Perera has accepted our invitation to exhibit her complex process-driven work with us. Again it is a great foil to work of our other associates, revealing and explicating the underlying ethos.

Sumi had an early interest in architecture but elected to study medicine, becoming a doctor before capitulating to the pull of making creative work originally exploring the book form, and usually employing some form of experimental printmaking.

Sumi is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, and maintains a very busy schedule of exhibiting nationally and internationally.

So far this year...

Earlier this year, of course, we were lucky enough to gain the support of English Master Printer Stanley Jones and artist Professor Tetsuya Noda of Japan - which is really thrilling for us.We look forward to learning much from their artistic experience and vast practical understanding of the art world.

This year has been a milestone for Prism with significant new associates and exhibitions at Clifford Chance in Docklands and in Poland at the Spodki Gallery, Bialystok.

Since our first exhibition in London's Mile End in October 2013 we have made the acquaintance of many brilliant artists in widely separated countries. We hope to continue to expand and give a platform to artists from countries beside our major artists from Europe and Japan.

Besides their technical mastery, which we find in all of our associates, it is their distinctive character and revealed influences which speak to us about the greater world and the importance of continuity in the age of globalisation.

Vladimiro Elvieri and Maria Chiara Toni (associate artists of Prism), for many years the driving forces behind the Cremona Biennale, also called L'Arte e il Torchio, have generously invited Prism to show the works of our associates at the IXth Engraving Exhibition in Cremona in 2017. We are very excited indeed and extremely grateful to them for this wonderful opportunity! (The full title is not yet fixed)

The current plan for this major international printmaking event includes:

1 - Masters of the ‘900, with prints by Picasso, Chagall, Mirò, Hayter, Clavé, Tapies.

2 - An exhibition entitled “The Secret Gesture”, with 20 – 25 contemporary international graphic artists.

3 – A collection of Ex libris dedicated to Claudio Monteverdi, musician and composer born in Cremona in 1567.

4 – The show of the PRISM Print International, with two works by each artist.

Cremona is famous for 'Antonius Stradivarius Cremonensis', the great 18th centruy violin maker, for being the birthplace of Claudio Monteverdi, and now for being the home of the Cremona International Engraving Exhibition, held every two years. Through the indefatigable efforts of Vladimiro Elvieri and his partner Maria Chiara Toni the international world of fine art printmaking has a very special focal point.

Elvieri and Toni represent the continuing passion and sensitivity to the graphic arts among Italians, and through this hugely significant exhibition bring together for a few weeks voices from all over the world delighted and proud to be seen together in the important cultural crucible of Cremona. This experience of cultural diversity is a beacon for the progressive and peacemaking forces of the world. Cremonans must be proud to see their favourite city reach out so far to make this message very clear, and I'm certain all of those artists lucky enough to have been invited to this event carry within their hearts a badge of honour. We are really looking forward to taking Prism to Cremona to meet and share with so many great artists in 2017!

Huge thanks and congratulations to Vladimiro ad Maria Chiara for achieving arrangements to hold this exhibition once more!
