Structural Interplay

Kate Webb, our super talented Letterpress Artist in Residence is currently exhibiting her body of work beside Gallery Central at North Metro TAFE.

Titled ‘Structural Interplay’, the body of work features some amazing experimentation — Joyful works that really speak to process and love of print.

Kate became totally emerged and at one stage, worked alongside @_h_r_s_k_  — she writes:

“… [the] important part of the residency, is the ability to immerse myself in the physicality of letterpress printing. This is so important because it is stimulating to all the senses in a way that computer generated art isn’t, and this is why traditional printing methods and techniques refuse to become obsolete… I’ve been able to take inspiration from modern technologies and implement them with the old. We can challenge the rules and restrictions that letter press printers have faced in the past and instead of grunting at imperfections, we can embrace them.”

Kate spoke about the experience to the wider letterpress community at the recent WA WAYZGOOSE in Whiteman Park.

The show is up for the remainder of the semester inside 12 Aberdeen Street in Northbridge.

*PS: ALSO FEATURED IN THIS GALLERY: A the secret show by @indmidd — absolutely outstanding typographic works. We literally felt we had stumbled across a typographic ark. Delicate, rhythmic, personal, #madeinwa works of delightfully size, with unique volume and tone. Captivating colour, kerning, type craft and baseline corrections were simply jaw dropping. Shortest day of the year is no excuse not to spending some time in the space filled with art!
