Irish printmakers are producing some of the most stimulating, powerful and imaginative work in the visual arts. Printmaking is a highly skilled, unique, complex, artistic process employed by artists since the 16th century. Contemporary printmakers now incorporate and embrace new technologies, producing rich, textural multidimensional imagery.
At the Original Print Gallery the range and subtlety apparent through the different techniques within the print medium, (etching lithography, screenprint, relief print, mezzotint, monoprint to name a few) is vast and comes as a very pleasant surprise to many visitors. From dynamic abstract works in large format to the more subtle landscape and figurative works, the gallery has much to offer.
