Warren Editions is delighted to present FLIPSIDE, a suite of monotype prints by Hugh Byrne, which draws on and investigates the visual language that he has developed in his painting and sculpture. The prints will be presented alongside sculptural work.
Hugh has described his practice as one of “keen observation and questioning…identifying a problem, solving it, letting that decision influence the next problem/solution, and so on. In this way, the artworks become tangible compilations of decisions, organised in one place.”
This process of allowing each decision to be guided by the results of the previous one was amplified and honed in the studio. As Hugh became more comfortable, he spent less time on exact registration and anticipating outcomes. More time was spent using various inking techniques to achieve texture, and arranging shapes directly on the press bed. The composed and elegant prints that have resulted from the collaboration are indicative of a loosening in Hugh’s approach – the flipside of his painting and sculpture practice.
