Presence – Ann-Marie Rayney

24 Apr

Ann-Marie Rayney

Printmaking is, first and foremost, a means of reproduction. Using printmaking, my work is concerned with undermining this idea of producing copies, of this homogenous spread of visual information. Either through labour intensive woodcuts, or fleeting moments of gestural activity caught in a monotype, I want to always produce something unique. Not only this, but I want to explore what it is we are looking at, whether through pushing an image to abstraction through means of reproduction, or looking to emphasize the blurred and ambiguous images that are always pushed to the background in magazines, in photo shoots, even advertisements. I want to slow people down and just let them take a moment with something, to wonder at what something could be.
