The Trans-Atlantic print exchange developed in thought during the Impact 6 conference held at UWE in September 2009. Through discussion with staff at both the University of the West of England and the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the print exchange was established as a means to open dialogue between the two universities’ Master of Printmaking and Books Arts degrees. There are eleven participating student artists from each university, that together form a collection of twenty-two prints.
The prints show the diversity of printmaking processes, as well as the diversity of the artists themselves. It can be observed that while each artist is unique in his or her practice and concepts, the overall approach to creating work is not isolated by country.
