The finished pamphlet to go with my work at the Degree show. Inspired by a hand out I received at Martin Creed exhibition in London and smaller exhibitions around Cardiff, hopefully this hand out will help explain the work and become a sort of visual map to guide the audience through the process and then through the final exhibition.  These will be available at the exhibition as well as smaller contact cards.

I have been working on a handout for the Degree show that will offer information about the work and also help navigate people around the prints. The pamphlet will be a two side A3 size document and above is the first side. The first side of the pamphlet (above) will have my artist statement when it is opened, followed underneath by a list of the Surface roll prints that are displayed on the furthest wall underneath the window. The information I will put will include the date that the plate was taken on a journey and the place that it took place.
When the pamphlet is open, to the right of this information will be the same list, but this time showing the order of the Intaglio prints on the wall next too the door as the viewer comes in.  This information I feel re-kindles a part of the journey where combined with the small selection of images that I have also provided along with the prints, the viewer is then free to interpret the work for themselves.
  On the back of the pamphlet (bottom right corner above)  there is an intaglio print of my Walk home for university . This is the only(Journey) plate that is not included in the Exhibition as It did not fit in the grid composition. I chose to leave this one out just because it was the last plate etched. I did not want to chose plates based on their individual composition as they were all left down to chance when being kicked or dragged across the ground.
On the back of the pamphlet ( this bit is not up as it unfortunately did not save, I’m currently working on it again) will have both an image of the Surface roll and intaglio plates. The order of this side will be : Surface roll, Intaglio, Surface roll, Intaglio  in the order that the journeys were taken, Please see the mock up pamphlet I have provided.
The final pamphlets will be printed on recycled paper that s of a medium weight. The reason for this was because I want to keep the paper texture as close as possible to the fabriano used in the prints, without them being too chunky once folded.
The Idea for making a pamphlet came from various shows that I have attended, including the Contemporary Art section of the National Museum of Wales, Gallery number 10,and most importantly the Martin Creed exhibition  London. From my experience having  small explanatory pamphlet that one can refer too throughout the exhibition can make the work more understandable and more accessible to members of the public who would not often visit a gallery setting.

This is the final composition for my Degree show Exhibition. I put the prints in the order that they were etched and printed. There is  two sets of 16 prints, one set of Surface rolls, and one set of intaglio prints. 

To hang the show I used sticky pads and glue dots to make pads that were 5mm thick. I wanted the prints to be hovering away from the wall so a natural shadow forms around the bottom of the prints. I felt that using nails or bulldog clips would be too distracting and draw attention from the deckled edges of the paper.

Journey

 My work explores the themes of journeys and time. I work within a process-based practice in which I seek to document events using traditional printmaking processes. The work involves taking steel plates that have been pre-prepared with a hard wax ground, on journeys, kicking or dragging them over the ground to capture traces of a moment in time. The prints reanimate the act of movement and demonstrate an aspect of a journey that is mundane and overlooked.

The body of work stems from an ongoing personal experience I have of short-term memory loss. I have developed systems where I prepare to document an event before it occurs, taking measures to capture a moment by using sketchbooks, notepads, iPad, social media and a voice recorder.

Through using traditional printmaking processes, I have developed a way of documenting a moment in time with a visual outcome, resulting in physical manifestations of my journeys. The body of work for me re-ignites the original experience, whilst also being ambiguous enough to be open to interpretation by the viewer.

Having decided that the final prints would be displayed on the work I wanted them to be perfectly flat and dry for the exhibition. Following a lot of handling some prints have been marked and I re-printed them to have a full clean set to display. After printing the new ones and allowing them to dry overnight I put them in-between clean sheets of newsprint and then placed four lithography stones on top overnight to flatten the prints. 

Having left the prints overnight I then prepared to hang them in the space in the morning. I organised them on the floor of the space in the order that they would be hung and then got on with measuring the space.

Today i had another go at placing my prints on to the tables in order to work out how they will be displayed at the degree show. My main reasoning for wanting to show on the tables originally was that I have grown an attachment to them over the course of the degree as I have worked on them on many occasions and feel that they would fit in well with the work. I also would like to show on tables as I am not showing pictures’ or images, I am displaying the end product of a process, a process that I undertook on a flat surface.

Firstly i tied five prints on the wall and five on the table. The idea behind this was to have only few prints and display in a minimal way. Unfotunately only having a few prints on the table caused the table to overpower them, as it is heavy and dark, being an over contrast too the prints that re minima and fairy light in tones in comparison to the table. 

The second composition that I tried was to have all of a set on a table and none on the wall. This did not work either as having two rows of prints on a table that was too narrow made the work look untidy. i decided that removing the tables was the best option and display the prints on the walls.
