Ian Phillips RCA – Working Proof
12/04/14 – 10/05/14
Ian Phillips has been working with lino for over twenty years, first as an illustrator, producing images for the editorial and publishing markets and then for the last 12 years as a landscape printmaker in Wales.
At the end of 2012 Phillips had an inspirational residency at the Djumbunji Print Workshop in Cairns, Australia, working with indigenous artists from the Torres Strait Islands. As well looking and developing patterned cutting in his work, the biggest change he brought back was in the way he looked at his work itself and the precious way he treated the end result. He is now starting to see his work as related steps in a progression towards something new. He no longer considers the finished print an inviolate item but, almost going back to his illustrator days, as another stage on the way to somewhere else, a working proof which he can use and abuse as he sees fit.
