Drawn In The Margins - Michelle Keegan
Drawn in the Margins Flourish Award by Michelle Keegan LPW Project Wall 3rd May – 15th July 2016
Printmaker Michelle Keegan is the 2014 winner of the Flourish Award for Excellence in Printmaking hosted by West Yorkshire Print Workshop. A Slade School of Art graduate, Michelle’s work in etching is minimalist and monochromatic, depicting a series of abstract layers, memories of spaces, places and landscape.
The Flourish award gave Michelle access to the WYPW studio where she developed this series of new work, entitled Still Navigating, which was first exhibited as part of a solo print exhibition at Huddersfield Art Gallery in 2015 – 2016. Drawn in the Margins brings together 8 etchings.
‘I am fascinated by printmaking, I live for it and have never ceased to be excited and amazed by its magic and potential. The process is a fundamental part of my work. The images emerge through allowing the print process of etching and the personality of the metal, on which the images are constructed, to become essential to the visual dialogue. The nature of the process demands clarity of thought, precision and reflection throughout the making process.’
