Printmaking Studio: Simon Harris
Simon Harris presents a Printmaking Studio as part of Ikon’s exhibition Start the Press! (9 February – 21 April 2024).
Harris is one of eight printmakers who operate an antique, working flatbed printing press from Wolverhampton School of Art: establishing a functioning printmaking workshop, producing original prints and filling the gallery walls as artwork is made in real time. Full schedule available here.
Start the Press! is presented as part of Ikon’s 60th anniversary year.
About the artist
Simon Harris is an artist and Senior Lecturer and Course Leader for BA (Hons) Fine Art at University of Wolverhampton. He was awarded his practice-based PhD: Deleuze and Painting: Rethinking the Formal, in 2016. Harris’ prints and paintings pursue a pictorial plane that has a relationship between printmaking, photography and painting, which references the cinematic surface as an abstracted image.
