Artists on WALL

Ralph McGaul is our debut artist

 Punctured Bicycle screenprint by Ralph McGaul.

Punctured Bicycle screenprint by Ralph McGaul.

Its with great excitement we can finally launch the artist section WALL to the store. Its been in the pipeline since we started the store, to support local artists and provide a forum for their work.  We will curate a diverse selection of work in a wide range of style + media, and aim to provide an innovative forum for contemporary art, keeping it collectable and always affordable.

The debut artist is Ralph McGaul, based in Macclesfield, he works in a range of media, predominantly creating oil paintings on board along side his print work of woodcuts + etchings. Ralph's work is typically naive + primitive characterised by a raw energy + expressive style. Relief printing is a particular favourite, the technique appeals as it limits the colour palette, creating strong opposing blocks of colour that form powerful simplified images. Ralph's influences are varied and diverse, Robert Colquhoun + Henry Moore alongside the simplicity of medieval art + the decorative style of African art. Ralph is involved with the Print Mill in Macclesfield, a creative space based at 78 Mill Street, it provides a workspace for drop in + scheduled workshops with guest print makers aswell as offering exhibition space for local artists + crafters. Ralph has a workshop space upstairs and his charming screen printed wallpaper flank the rickety stairwell walls, definately worth a look next time your in the area. For print workshop enquiries + opening times approx: Mon - Thur 9.30 - 2.30  facebook: The Print Mill @theprintmill. info@thehamiltonproject.co.uk
