Critical Mass: Printmaking Beyond the Edge

Critical Mass draft cover


Richard Noyce, A&C Black (London), September 2010, ISBN 9781408109397

Following on from the well-received, ‘Printmaking at the Edge’, this book continues the exploration of the richness of the contemporary printmaking community. The work of well-known artists is included together with work by lesser-known artists whose work requires wider consideration, and a number of new graduates whose work offers an insight into possible future directions for printmaking. The work of 52 artists from 27 countries is included, together with a number of brief essays to set the scene and the context. The works included cover a wide range of techniques, from the most traditional forms to extreme forms of digital art utilising cutting-edge technology and time-based media.

The book is of value to students, professional artists and all those with an interest in the contemporary visual arts.
