Lidija Antanasijevic

A Serbian born artist Lidija Antanasijevic works in domain of experimental printmaking in both 2D and 3D by using traditional and modern methods. Originally trained in printmaking at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade, where she obtained both her BA (1988) and MA (1991), Lidija has continued to explore the medium technically, conceptually and formally, developing prints as sculptures and installations. She explores raw emotion and inner energy seeking to give form to senses and experiences. The subject is personal experience, a series of visual memoirs of a cross cultural migrant, brought up and living through the geo-political conditions of the era.

Lidija moved to London in 1991, soon after her first solo show at the Gallery Graficki Kolektiv (critically acclaimed) in Belgrade. Since then she has been widely exhibiting her work both nationally and internationally. Last year she had two major solo projects, one in Belgrade, again at the Gallery Graficki Kolektiv as a part of its 60th anniversary, and at the Western Gallery of Xi’An Academy of Fine Arts in China. She is Laureate of the Great Seal for Printmaking in Serbia, a national recognition for the prominent contribution in the field.

Statement

I have been working in lino for the last six years.

I like the work of many historical artists and printmakers, they include:

Kathe Kollwitz, a master draughtswoman and campaigner for social consciousness and human verities.

Leopoldo Mendez, for his revolutionary art, social agitator and oratory in his print making.

Claire Leighton, for her style and technique in print making.

The Grosvenor School, for their futuristic abstract concepts and cutting edge styles in print making.

I also like contemporary artists’ Swoon for her urban [art] wheat paste prints and paper cut-outs and Mode 2, for his draughtsmanship, style and concepts.

My inspirations are formulated from literature and ‘things’ from our everyday world.

Jairo Zaldua & Nicoela Green

Statement

Jairo and Nicola create imagery together through the mediums of print and three-dimensional art. Combining the appearance of the sculptural and the two-dimensional surface of the printed image. Observing the archaic qualities of neglected posters and derelict buildings where a sense of age and history has left its mark, they have assembled an ongoing exploration into themes that include old propaganda and billboard posters, typography, symbolism and German expressionist cinema. As old posters decay and the original meanings become irrelevant, they transfigure into something more suggestive. With the use of a blowtorch, acrylics, screenprinting and digital facilities, Jairo and Nicola seek to push this process further. From found objects (wood, scrap metal and old victorian doors) to site specific installation and interactive performance, they have embarked on work where layers reveal layers and a sense of age, time and texture are clearly present.

Jairo specialized in Fine Art Printmaking at the University of Hertfordshire and Nicola studied Ceramic Art at the Roehampton Institute.

Janet Wilson

Statement

Janet Wilson lives and works in London. She is a member of East London Printmakers and the Printmakers Council and makes work based on the landscape. The prints are collagraphs, etchings, monoprints and lithographs which aim to evoke both a sense of place and the sublime character of the natural world. Inspiration comes from the movement of weather and tides, in mapping, aerial views and examination of scale – from the great to the microscopic.
