Cornerstone Gallery: The Intensives Gallery present Patrick Wagner
Dates: 30/11/2016 - 12/01/2017
The INTENSIVES GALLERY present in England for the first time :
Patrick Wagner, born 1980 in Speyer (Germany) has a background as a graffiti artist. He lived in Tokyo in 2001 and 2003, working as a video game tester for KOEI. After that, he studied English, before studying at the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts (Kiel) and the National University of Fine Arts (Bucharest). After finishing his MFA at the Academy of Fine Arts (Helsinki) with a thesis on collaborative printmaking he now teaches lithography at the Royal Institute of Art (Stockholm).
Patrick will be exhibiting The Graveyard Prints Series, a playful result of his research into medieval small format prints. The artist etches tiny skeletons on copper plates, which are then cut up into small shapes, like archaeological digging sites. The works are printed with chine-collé technique; colorful, Japanese and Chinese paper is laminated on the backing paper, often in two layers.
The full show exhibits from 30th November until 12th January at the Cornerstone Gallery (Liverpool Hope University).
