Greyscales: A3 monochrome printer drawings

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


Greyscales is a series of A3 monochrome printer drawings made using Ariel 6pt line covering all eleven greys in the Adobe Illustrator greyscale palette.
Through the use of basic ordering systems, in which no stress is placed on one thing over and above another and the proposition that no one grey tone is inherently preferable to another, all eleven greys are allowed to coexist in equal formations and are presented as they occur and repeated. These works were exhibited as part of 'Combinations' an exhibition which brought together a group of artists from New Zealand and the UK (Duncan Bullen, Veronique Chance, Nicholas Devison, Johanna Love, Mark Graver, Stephen Mumberson) with a shared interest in hybrid and inter-medial approaches to printmaking and the relationship between established print media and evolving technologies.

Combining traditional methods with developments in digital technology and print in a wider context the artists represented here acknowledge both the historical traditions and the technological advancements. Their work is not appropriation of technology for technology’s sake but an awareness of the conceptual connections and combinations between the two and includes 3D, video, photopolymer etching and digital prints.
