Talking Art Sessions
Discover what inspires print-makers around the world in the third of our series of talks exclusively for West Yorkshire Print Workshop.
Enjoy an audience with Hazel Roberts, a previous winner of our Flourish Award for Excellence in Printmaking.
Hazel started her image-making career as a painter, graduating in the late nineties from Cardiff with a first class BA hons in Fine Art before exploring printmaking – a medium, in her own words “offering an unpredictability, but a need for discipline and ruthless accuracy” (we agree!).
Hazel’s practice explores the personal, the political and always the playful. Heavily influenced by Dada, Bauhaus, Constructivism, French cinema and the need to bite back from all the bad advice given at art school, printmaking is Hazel’s way of slowing down, exploring narratives and trapping ideas. She works mainly with silkscreens, but has recently been experimenting by combining screen-printing with wooden block type and chine colle.
Hear what inspires Hazel on and off the printing press, and find out more with a round of Q&A to close the session.
