David Turvey Prints presents Best of British Printmaking
featuring John Duffin & Michael Kirkman
Exhibition runs: 7th – 12th July 2015
Open: Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 6pm (Sunday 10am to 4pm)
44AD is delighted to welcome David Turvey Prints back to the gallery and warmly invites you to the Private View on Tuesday evening.
Although extensively exhibited and collected elsewhere in the country, this is John Duffin’s first show in Bath. Described by the Independent’s Philip Pearson as “…a twenty-first century Lowry”, Duffin’s exemplary draughtsmanship underpins a body of work that is redolent with influences from cinema, graphic novels and the history of painting.
Michael Kirkman’s enigmatic, timeless images reveal his fine sense of colour, ability to exploit the technical possibilities of linocuts and powerful draughtsmanship. For Kirkman, this is a second showing in Bath, and there will be a range of new prints and drawings.
Also on show will be a selection of post-war prints from the archives of the highly reputable Emma Mason Gallery, based in Sussex. As an introduction to his work, there will also be some rare etchings by the London based artist, Martin Ridgwell, from his Shadowplay series.
