Thursday 26th May 2016 Utopia/Dystopia Exhibition at Fringe Arts Bath

I have been selected to take part in the exhibition Utopia/Dystopia as part of Bath's Annual Fringe Visual Arts Festival. The exhibition is one of a series of events and exhibitions in the city inspired by the 500th anniversary of the publication of Utopia, Sir Thomas More’s reflections on the concept of an ideal society.

Four lino/monoprint prints have been created in response to The Yellow Wallpaper, the short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilmore. In the story, a woman is confined or imprisoned in her room and attempts to claw through the wallpaper in an attempt to reveal what she sees underneath. The writing can be interpreted as a Gothic Horror tale but it is also an early Feminist tract, as her condition is linked to her apparent lack of independence.

The exhibition runs from 27 May to 12 June 2016.

Last year I was one of the 584 artists that took part in the Hot Bed Press 20:20 Print Exchange, where each participating artist had to produce an edition of 25 prints, measuring 20x20cm. I produced 25 Small Yellow Wallpaper prints, 24 were send randomly to the other participating artists and studios, and the remaining print, along with the 583 prints from the other artists, all go on tour.
