Since 1995, Alan
Cristea has championed printmaking from his eponymous Cork
Street gallery, becoming the largest distributor and publisher of
prints in Europe.
To celebrate the 20 year milestone, the gallery has prepared a
unique anniversary exhibition. Alongside highlights from the past
twenty years, including works by Patrick Caulfield, Roy
Lichtenstein and Pablo Picasso, is a special Anniversary Portfolio.
Twenty one of the galleries artists, including Howard Hodgkin (see
left, Herb Garden, 2014), Julian Opie and Edmund de
Waal (ceramicist and author of The Hare with Amber
Eyes) have contributed to a boxed-set of prints. Techniques
range from woodcut to lithography and the box is an edition of 40
(only 38 of which are for sale).
Post-celebrations, the show will swiftly be followed on 20th
February by Richard Long: The Spike Island Tapes, a
collection of carborundum relief prints named after songs or music
'he just likes'. Long live printmaking.
