From an edition of prints created by staff, students and invited artists 2006-2007
Limited Edition prints are made using particular print processes whereby the image is created using appropriate media to reflect an idea.
The media was traditionally; etching, silkscreen, lithography and engraving but due to technological developments now embraces 3D, digital media and photographic processes. The work would tend not to exist previously as a painting or in any other form, but is realised and resolved in the process of print itself.
Today was the last day of a short display of work representing Artists who have participated in previous Look Again projects held in the city of Aberdeen, many of which were graduates of Gray’s School of Art.
Also on display were works by alumni who have not only worked on some of these public projects but who also have work held in the RGU Art and Heritage Collection. Examples include The Aunties (Disposable Women) by Mags Gray. Mags received an RGU Art and Heritage Purchase Award in 2010.
Former member of Gray’s School of Art staff Gordon Burnett also had work featured. A folding commemorative clock designed by Gordon was a commissioned gift to RGU from Aberdeen University to celebrate the Robert Gordon Institute of Technology becoming a University. Gordon Burnett was also recently chosen for a commission to create the Forget Them Not monument housed in Aberdeen Art Gallery. The monument provides a focus on remembering those who have fallen in the conflicts of the world.
