Paul Morrison

'I'm interested in cognitive landscape, the terrain that one sees, somewhere behind the eyes' - Paul Morrison. Manifold Editions publishers three new editions from the Sheffield artist Paul Morrison, whose enigmatic botanical landscapes and night gardens combine familiar and unfamiliar elements of plant forms and flowers with motifs ranging from renaissance art to Lichtenstein and 60s Op Art. His intensely linear work typically disrupts proportions so that tiny plants become huge and massive trees shrink, creating an unsettling experience that leads the viewer to a 'cognitive landscape' lying beyond the image plane. The original painting was shown at Morrison Sheffield retrospective, November 2013.


Technique
5 colour screenprint, a satin glaze & embossed flower. Printed on 410 gsm Somerset Tub Sized. Published by Manifold Editions 2013.

Screenprint
Also known as silkscreen. In its simplest form, this is a technique by which the artist blocks out a section of a fine, woven screen (formerly made of silk), which is stretched over a frame. With a squeegee, ink is pressed evenly through the screen on to a sheet of paper beneath. Only the areas of the screen not blocked out will be printed. The artist will use as many of these transparent sheets (separations) as the numbers of colours required in the print, and each sheet must be aligned very carefully with the others. The films are transferred on to the silkscreens via a light-sensitive process: only the areas which are painted by the artist will be blocked out and will not allow ink through.
