Insight into this project
Neal Morris invited participating Artist in a printmaking research project I am currently coordinating entitled `Injured Text'. It is my intention for a group of eminent practitioners to be resident printmakers at Liverpool School of Art and Design, for a period of time to be arranged at the convenience of all parties
a research theme, the notion of autonomy of visual language and the
resulting personal iconography, which is often very poetic and elegiac,
has been hotly debated throughout the Twentieth Century, with many
artists using text as part of a complex visual language to signify
their intentions. The Injured Text project seeks to provide a platform
and showcase for a group of artists of international standing to work
alongside research teams from the department of Graphic Arts at Liverpool
School of Art and Design, and to extensively explore this notion of
autonomy and commonality of visual language by bringing their own
content and personal themes to a body of collaborative work produced
in the print studios at Liverpool School of Art and Design.
