Tutor in Residence
Graham Marchant from Sydney
Graham has over thirty years’ experience as a practising artist and art educator. He trained in the UK, gaining a BA and MA both at honours level and has taught extensively in Australia, the USA and the United Kingdom. He resigned his senior lecturer position at the University of Western Sydney in 2003 to concentrate on his own practise. Graham has held over twenty-five one person exhibitions and has been the recipient of several fellowships and artist residencies. His principle mediums are printmaking, painting and drawing. Graham is the past president of the Sydney Printmakers and a member of the Australian Watercolour Institute.
As printmaking is a medium that so readily adapts itself to individual interpretation, this class will appeal to both those with printmaking experience and to those who may not be familiar with the printmaking process but have a curiosity about the medium and a desire to extend their preferred medium into print. We will work with both black and white etching and explore the various methods of intaglio colour printmaking. In addition we will investigate the qualities of relief printmaking (lino and wood blocks).
You can work with these techniques separately or decide on a print that involves a combination of these, or simply devote your time to concentrating on one medium. Bring along your drawings and photographs and discover how to adapt and develop your ideas into beautiful multiple prints.
