Under Pressure: Editioned Prints from ART 318, Intermediate Printmaking
July 11 – 29, 2016
Commons Gallery

The tradition of printing in multiples dates to the 16th century. At its core lies the purpose of printmaking: the intent to disseminate images or text to a wider audience. In contemporary practice, “edition printing,” the production of duplicate images of consistent quality exists in the realms of both high art professional print workshops and the garage studios of the poster-making community.

The printmaking studio at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM) pays respect to the vital skills required for duplicate printing and the difficulty and challenges inherent in this manner of working. Our curriculum supports the development of the technical discipline and work ethic necessary for edition printing to function as a meaningful and successful method of graphic production of multiples.

Under Pressure presents a survey of work produced by over 50 students in the printmaking studios of UHM from 2010–2016. Each individual print comes from an edition of at least 15 impressions.
