A master painter established originally in London then Madron in Cornwall from 1995, Hugh Stoneman (1947-2005) was renowned for his unique collaborations with national and international artists. Working in dialogue with painters, photographers and sculptors, he ensured that, through the intrinsic artistic qualities of print media, their work found new relationships between image and material.Celebrating a career spanning four decades, "Hugh Stoneman: Master Printer" revisits some of Stoneman's key collaborations. Intensely passionate about the possibilities of the contemporary print, Stoneman introduced numerous artists to the medium, supporting them both technically as well as through publishing.From the perspective of the master printer, the project showcases over forty works drawn from Stoneman's estate. It highlights his ability to work with expressive diversity, alongside many well-known artists such as Ian McKeever, Patrick Heron, Grayson Perry, George Shaw, Gary Hume, Eve Arnold and Eileen Cooper. This accompanying publication includes two new texts from Mike Tooby, Director of Learning and Programmes at the National Museum of Wales, and from Sara Lee, one of Stoneman's former studio assistants and co-publishers.
