A Journey through Different Techniques from 18th. Century to the Present

Ongoing 2014

ourCHOICE is a yearly exhibition where staff members of the Crawford Art Gallery choose works of art from the collection.

This year the exhibition theme has been inspired by the remarkable print collection of the Gallery, that contains over 500 works.

Thanks to the Gallery’s team and their personal insights into the collection, visitors have the opportunity to view how printing techniques can convey different expressions of the artist’s talent.

Some of the techniques have survived through the ages, even when new ones were introduced, such as the examples of engravings by Daniel Maclise (1806-1870) and by Robert Gibbings (1889-1958).

Even important artists of the early 20th Century decided to interpret their art by re-using old techniques like lithography for Joan Miró (1893-1984) or etching for Pablo Picasso (1881-1973).

However, the inkjet print CAD Drawing 6 by Corban Walker (b. 1967) represents a contemporary way of printing.

This exhibition aims at highlighting the different techniques which artists have employed to create their works.
