Hugh Stoneman: Master printer

Richard Deacon 9 x 9 2005 Woodcut

A master printer established originally in London then Madron, Cornwall from 1995, Hugh Stoneman (1947–2005) is still renowned for his unique collaborations with national and international artists. Working in dialogue with painters, photographers and sculptors, he ensured that, through the intrinsic artistic qualities of print media, their work found new relationships between image and material.

Celebrating a career of over 30 years, the exhibition revisits some of Stoneman's key collaborations and showcases his ability to work in an extraordinary range of expressive styles. His obsession to perfect various techniques earned him an international reputation, and he worked with many well known Modern and contemporary artists, from Terry Frost, Patrick Heron, Sandra Blow and Ian McKeever to Eve Arnold, Gary Hume, George Shaw and Grayson Perry.
