My degree work for my BA in printmaking at Brighton

by Barry


Posted 31-Jul-2015


During my degree I started to print onto glass. Given the limitations of equipment, I screen printed onto waterslide decals with ceramic enamels and then fired and slumped these in a kiln onto glass.

Like the work I did for my MA this work is about that which you cannot fully see and the limited ways that we understand and communicate between ourselves.

In this work I used a mixture of text which is readable and some which is not. By having text in a magical or hidden alphabet it is hidden to those who do not know the alphabet or language and I have used this as symbolic way of showing that much is hidden and not easily understood

The texts for this series of work were primarily Sufi and Buddhist texts.
