If All the World Were Paper and All the Seas Were Ink: An exhibition of prints by Bernie Rutter & guest curator Vitor Azevedo.Bernadine Rutter is a visual artist, printmaker, sculptor and photographer. Originally from the West Midlands and from early childhood, fascinated by industrial process, by the alchemy of change, by pressure, by heat, by the intervention of human intervention.Within printmaking she uses mark making, to create controlled narrative and torn plates to create more abstract accidental texture. Sometimes the prints remained and sometimes they are shaped in to sculptural form.In photography and digital imagery, she plays with exaggerated perspective and textured overlays. Sometimes the accidental and sometimes highly staged, enjoying the unexpected transformation a process brings, from the ancient to the digital, the veiled, the accidental, not always knowing the outcome.Exhibition Dates: 16 May - 27 July 2019Free Launch Event: Thursday 16 May 6:30pm
