17 September – 9 October 2010
Exhibition of work by three artists; Emma Gregory, Martin Kochany and David Henckel who work side by side in the print rooms at University of Central Lancashire and as tutors on the print programme at the Bluecoat in Liverpool.
In terms of subject matter and approach the artists are quite different but a three-way dialogue of marks, moods and methods is bound to occur. Gregory, Henckel and Kochany have embraced this process of exchange and the exhibition Trialogue – meaning three-way dialogue – is one of the results.
Martin Kochany – Trailogue Work
“This statement precedes the making of new works, as I don’t like showing art that existed before being invited to exhibit. In a sense I set myself a brief, a deadline and the incumbent challenges therein be they aesthetic, technical or domestic.
These prints are part of wider project called Seepage. I’m interested in the surface and what lies beneath – both metaphorically and physically. The prints derive from and incorporate drawing, drips and splashes- as I’m attracted to the frailty of the hand made.
Although I occasionally edition prints, I prefer making multiple prints incorporating variations. Variation acknowledges that unlike the poet or musician, I rarely feel that I’ve captured the definitive.”
David Henckel ‘Krispie’
