SHIFT is an exhibition of new prints by Tazelaar Stevenson. With shifting shapes and stripes of translucent pastels and bold, flat colours – combined with messy , loose marks – these prints are part of an ongoing dialogue with colour and form.
Using fundamentally simple shapes gives an opportunity to really focus on the screenprint process, to work with the process, and often the final outcome is determined by the process itself.
“I’m at play when I print, but I keep my mind focused with the knowledge and skill set I’ve accumulated as a framework for this playful process. I look for the magic in the normal and mundane.” Tazelaar Stevenson.
Taz in an artist/printmaker based in Norwich, part of his practise over the years has included designing and printing record sleeves for recording artists such as Dan Snaith (Caribou/Daphni), Kieran Hebden (Fourtet) as well as local electronic artists Luke Abbott and Nathan Fake. These will be on display as part of the SHIFT exhibition.
“It’s rare to come across things that are so beautiful they stop you in your tracks. Somehow, through some sort of alchemy, Taz has the gift of making such things routinely.” Dan Snaith (Caribou)
“Taz’s work speaks in the fundamental language of nature; it represents a deep connection with the rhythms of the universe. In this way his work strives for the same ideals as much of the music he has become associated with.” Luke Abbott
A selection of prints / editions and risographs will be available to buy at the show opening and during the exhibition.
