The Human Body - Talk on the traditional technique of etching
To promote a better understanding and appreciation of the artistic value and craftsmanship behind the production of etchings, Alteria Art in association with Arcane Studios offered a one-day event to explore the traditional technique. On this occasion, master printmaker Ian Steadman hosted an exclusive tour of his studio and two artists who created work for the Human Body series discussed their experiences of working with the media.The audience was also able to enjoy a unique insight from the curators of the Alteria Art boxset of editions.
In an age where digital media prevails, it is important to recognise the creative relevance and the ability of long-established, talented art specialists. The Human Body series was on display as part of the open studio day event.
Talk given by the artists Hugo Wilson and Byzantia North with the printmaker Ian Steadman.
