Not to be confused with the commercial printing techniques used in mass reproductions, printmaking is a mysterious art form to many people. The seemingly-magical transformation of metal, wood, stone and lino to create beautiful pictures takes hours of work and years of experience. Cutting Edge at Gallery Q in Dundee is an exhibition of printmakers, featuring Ian Phillips RCA. Alongside Ian is a group of artists from Scotland and Wales who use different printmaking techniques. Ian has been working in hand-printed reduction linocut for over 20 years, specialising in consecutive series of prints taken from drawings executed while walking long-distance footpaths or exploring areas of interest. By their very nature his linocuts and woodcuts are very limited editions, as each layer of the image can only be printed once before being cut away to make way for the next layer.
