During the first lockdown, whilst Northern Print was closed and everyone was staying at home, we invited our studio artists to create a piece of work together - encouraging people to stay creative and contribute to something that we could make together once restrictions had eased and the studio could re-open.
It was decided that we would make a collagraph print – with each person receiving a section to work on from home. The image we chose was LS Lowry’s ‘Market scene, Northern Town’, a lively painting depicting a market scene which had a real feeling of togetherness.
Each artist made their collagraph section using materials from home to glue together on a piece of cardboard, creating a textured collaged effect.
These sections were then brought together at Northern Print, inked up and printed on the press to create this finished piece.
