Winner of the R.K. Burt prize at the 2014 National Original Print Competition, Paul Thirkell will be exhibiting his prints this August at the R.K. Burt Gallery for Ex-Machina (from the machine). 
Over twenty works by Thirkell will be shown across the two-floor gallery, displaying the artist’s wide range of printmaking techniques, from collotypes to etchings to inkjet prints.
What unites these different forms of printmaking is Thirkell’s imagery, which is based upon scientific and natural history illustrations sourced from old encyclopaedias and journals, which he avidly collects. Thirkell brings these illustrations in to the modern world by manipulating them through new digital processes, before printing them again, often using traditional printmaking methods, such as the collotype, to retain the look and feel of their original source. 
By merging both old and new techniques, Thirkell describes how his Ex-Machina prints evoke ‘a dream-like quality that would no longer make sense as scientific illustrations.’ Rather, Thirkell’s prints work like the subconscious – bringing together memories and present-day events all at once.

Ex-Machina – from Wednesday 19th to Thursday 27th August, 0900 until 1700 Monday to Friday, R.K. Burt Gallery, 57-61 Union Street, London, SE1 1SG.

Paul Flannery 

Where the technical support or (medium) for  artists working with "print" has historically been the combination of matrix, ink, paper and a desire to replicate appropriate and disseminate, Paul Flannery has successfully transposed these alchemic practices to the platform of the internet.
