PCANZ Collaborative Print - Group 1 progression

This is a collaborative project I have been involved with this year.

PCANZ Collaborative Print

"Leave Your Mark"

50 printmakers produce 5 collaborative prints
to celebrate the Print Council of Australia (PCA), 50 years of print, 2016.

Curated by Prue MacDougall.

For this project there are 5 groups of 10 printmakers.
Each group produced an edition of 12 prints and 2 APs.
Each printmaker will receive a final print that their group has produced.
One print from each group will be sent to the PCA to be exhibited under the umbrella of the Print Council of Aotearoa New Zealand (PCANZ).
Sets of the prints are also to be exhibited around NZ 
at various venues to be announced.

I have been involved with collating all of the images of the
prints in progress in order to create a record of the
evolution of the prints.

With a project like this I think that the process
is as, if not more, important than the final product.
With so many printmakers involved, all over the country,
it was a massive task to coordinate the project but in the end
it mostly went very well with just a few glitches along the way.

In the process of collating the images I have found it very interesting to look at the many ways in which the different printmakers have approached their contribution to the prints. Some used existing plates, some created entirely new plates in response to their print. Some techniques were complex and advanced and yet some were very simple.

It just goes to show that there is no right or wrong way
to approach a project like this, just "your" way. 

I will be making all of the images available in various formats, via PCANZ, once the final set of prints is completed and they are all ready to be exhibited.

In the meantime, here is Group 1's print as it progresses through the 10 printmakers.
