Hexagon is about professional artists discovering, or rediscovering, printmaking as a medium full of possibility.This exhibition is the culmination of a project and residency that shows the work of the six participating artists. The artists that participated in Hexagon include three professional Wicklow based artists; Aoife Flynn, Laura Kelly and Joanna Kidney, and three members of Cork Printmakers; Conall Cary, Dominic Fee and Fiona Kelly. The six artists worked together over a two week residency from 28th July to the 8th August 2014 at Cork Printmakers’ Studio, Cork City. This residency offered the artists a unique opportunity to collaborate, learn new skills and explore techniques in a professional print studio. The development of hybrid approaches and challenge to traditional boundaries of printmaking, enables audiences to see printmaking in a new light.
Hexagon is a Wicklow County Arts Office project presented by Cork Printmakers in association with Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre.
