LOOP has been presenting the best in new printmaking through annual exhibitions since 2005. The 2021 exhibition featured recent work from internationally exhibiting artists, founders of print studios and recent Camberwell College MA Printmaking graduates who use traditional and cutting-edge technologies to push print as an art form. Bankside is the Gallery of the Royal Watercolour Society (RWS), and the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers (RE). Its vibrant exhibitions celebrate the very best in contemporary water-based media and original print, championing the work of both new and established artists. Bankside’s excellence in Print demonstrate it is the perfect venue for the group to return to for the tenth time for the 2022 show.
The LOOP artists, focussing on print (but also other media) have been progressive in moving their work from 2D to 3D, using a variety of surfaces including artists books, ceramic, box constructions, wood and others. They have experimented with size, from large format hangings to small format groups of pieces. They have also tested and incorporated new techniques such as putting photopolymer gravure with monoprint or collagraph, or screen print with collage. The 2022 LOOP show will continue this interesting progression with an exhibition of affordable art by a number of experienced artists that, when hung in its typical eclectic and non-linear way lends itself to a modern and inventive show.
The combination of the LOOP artists’ fundamental ethos, Bankside’s wonderful venue, the energetic and varied work, and the affordability of Print promises that the LOOP2022 show is set to be an extremely exciting exhibition that isn’t to be missed.
