Age Friendly Printing.

Members of the Age Friendly Art Group at the Whitworth spent two creative afternoons with artist Alan Birch making chine colle engravings and monoprints. The photographic exhibition by John Stezaker, ¬†inspired the ¬†surreal engravings whilst paintings and drawings by Cecily Brown formed the starting point for the monoprints. For the monoprints artists used masterworks from the Whitworth’s collection to investigate, record and eventually dismantle.
