The Department of Art & Design’s Printmaking Area is internationally recognized for its innovative teaching and creative research practices. It is supported by active, award winning professors, staff and technicians, who have exhibited their work in renowned museums, universities and cultural institutions around the world. The basic areas of Printmaking include relief, intaglio/etching, silkscreen, lithography and digital media. These printing processes provide artists with the opportunity to explore a wide array of graphic languages, work indirectly on images through a variety of materials including wood and metal, layer imagery, and combine drawing with photographic and digital imagery. Creatively Printmaking is an extremely fluid and dynamic medium that enables artists to work across a wide range of sensibilities and technical processes that encompass drawing, design, illustration, photography, digital media, book arts, as well as to explore ideas in inter-media, sculpture and installation. As a department we respect the traditions and foundation of Printmaking whilst fostering a desire to see it grow and evolve.
