Last night the ELP hosted an inspirational talk by Studio Heretic. Here is ELP’s brief description:
‘Heretic is an experimental screen printing studio comprising of Luke Frost, Jon Rundall and Therese Vandling. Their wide ranging activities have most recently taken the form of an ongoing and evolving body of work called Spectral Nation: an exploration of screen printing as a medium and process, looking at colour interactions and the journey an image makes, from digital manipulation into analogue, and the transformations and distortions this journey can bring about, uncovering hidden complexities within simple compositions.’
The talk was fascinating. The room itself was plastered in colourful and experimental print work bringing their talk to life as well as creating a beautiful back drop. With the recent rise in Screen printing, it was refreshing to see a talk about such an original and unique approach to print. Heretic specialise in colour experimentation creating prints that feel curious and complex. They spoke about past projects, of which my particular favourites were ‘Spectral Nation’ and ‘Colour Gravity’ They also spoke of more recent projects which have included installation pieces as well as book covers.
A truly inspiring talk as they continually strive to push the boundaries of print production. I look forward to seeing whats next…
