Artists are drawn to printmaking because it can provide a language of marks, a richness of colour and depth and other unique characteristics that can’t be achieved in any other way. In using reproductive means while avoiding being reproduction, printmaking is unique in that it manages to be both original artwork and multiple at the same time. This event will look at printmaking in contemporary Irish Visual Art.
