40/40 is on show now at An Lanntair, Arts Centre, Stornoway, Isle of Lewis. 40/40 is a suite of prints to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Glasgow Print Studio, which was formally founded in February 1973. It is an impressive and ambitious body of work that is representative of GPS in particular, both their published artists and artist members, but also of Scottish artists in a wider context.
The published artists are high profile with international reputations who collaborate with master printers. As such there are 20 new prints by artists that include Bruce McLean, Adrian Wiszniewski, Jim Lambie, Scott Myles, Elizabeth Blackadder and Claire Barclay, to name but a few.
Accompanying them are 20 prints by their working members. These professional and committed artists publish their own limited edition prints using the facilities at GPS. They include, Stuart Duffin, Jo Ganter, Ciara Phillips, Scott Campbell, Ashley Cook, Murray Robertson and Jacki Parry.
