Nigel Oxley “My Father’s War”
[IMage: Flyer: PRISM 11 TOKYO, Nigel Oxley exhibition and John Read exhibition]
This event has ended.
Nigel Oxley worked at Kelpra Studio as master printer on many artists etchings/copper-plate printing such as Jim Dine, Barry Flanagan from towards the end of 1970s. He taught at Sir John Cass School of Art, London Metropolitan University. He continues to work and teach in his own printmaking studio in East Sussex. In 2012 he co-founded with long-term friend, John Read, PRISM Print International. Fifteen prints exhibited at Print Gallery Tokyo are a response to his father’s experiences as a prisoner of war from 1942 to 1945 — stories the artist was never told directly, but discovered several years after his father’s death while sorting through his effects. The processes include drypoint, polymer etching, solar plate etching, dremel engraving, and chine collee. Non standard materials were also prepared for planographic printing and hand applied colour and pochoir. All the plates/matrices were inked and then assembled on the bed of etching press in order to be printed as one with a single pass through the press.
