A little more than a month ago my interview with Emma was published on their website.
All questions are unique to each artist but I noticed there is one question they ask to all artists.
How do you think printing will evolve?
I found it challenging to answer this so it got me thinking.
In the interview I said it is definitely steering towards digital printing.
The past five years since graduating from university, I have noticed many more students are choosing digital media in the printmaking departments.
Also at a bookbinder where I work part-time, more people seem to be using iPad or other digital media instead of turning their artworks into a bound book a folio.
Printmaking will hold on, separate from digital printing and I hope it will continue to be relevant in art world, not a secondary art form after conceptual installations or sculptures and paintings.
Not only it is a beautiful art form with a long deep history and tradition, but also I believe it can reach better to a wider audience and connect to people and community.
Pressurscapes states "For us, printmaking is not a minor form of art that should be forgotten in the era of digital prints: our goal is to combine our contemporary aesthetics with our love of drypoint and etching"
Thank you Pressurescapes for giving me the opportunity for the interview!
