ANIMATION + PRINTING
12th July – 23rd September 2017
Organised by Barbara Tetenbaum, Professor and Head of Book + Print, Oregon College of Art and Craft, and Marilyn Zornado, Assistant Professor in Communication Design, Pacific Northwest College of Art.
This exhibition presents a selection of short animated films from around the US and the world, each created using techniques common in the book arts such as letterpress printing from moveable type, wood type, pressure printing, lino and wood cut, etching, silkscreen as well as animation in watermarked paper. These films represent a new territory for Book/Print artists and are interesting not only because of their technical production, but because we see printmakers trying their hand at animation, and animators trying their hand at print techniques and many for the first time.
Angie Butler and Catherine Cartwright each have an animation featured in this show…
Angie and Claire Baillie-Cloke (both MAMDP alumni) put together ‘Greetings’ an animation from letterpress prints made for LENvention 1, 2013 which Angie organised.
The prints were made to the themed call for animated letterpress works.
Catherine’s animation ‘Where the Children Play’ is a reflection on where sport begins; in the imaginations and playtime of childhood. The children are scratchy drawn print animations overlaid onto footage of Exeter’s Sandy Lane with a soundscape of a 1950s international rugby game. Commissioned by Fabians Film for the project Culture, Data, Projector.
