Luke Jerram residency at CFPR
Dates: January 2013
CFPR have been working with the artist Luke Jerram on a series of sculptures which act as three-dimensional pixilated portraits. As with a pixilated two dimensional image made of squares, from a distance the sculptures can be easily read. As the viewer gets closer the object will appear to fragment into cubes.
View Images: Image1 - Image2 - image3
To make this artwork the subject was scanned in three-dimensions and the scan was pixilated into cubes known as voxels. The model was then created using laser cutting and printing technology at the CFPR where Luke Jerram is a visiting Senior Research Fellow. Commissioned by the Watershed (with funding from Arts Council England) the artworks are being created for installation at the Bristol Temple Quarter.

Two Books and a Stuck Record
Dates:5th March, 2013
PUBLISHED by: MIT Press
Venue:Gagosian Gallery, New York
As part of his on-going research into the artists’ books produced by the artist Ed Ruscha and those who appropriate this work, Tom Sowden has been invited to contribute to ‘VARIOUS SMALL BOOKS: Referencing Various Small Books by Ed Ruscha’ published by MIT Press in early 2013 with accompanying exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery, New York.
In the 1960s and 1970s, Ed Ruscha created a series of artists' books, among them Twentysix Gasoline Stations, Every Building on the Sunset Strip, Various Small Fires and A Few Palm Trees. Since then, many others have paid homage, recreated and ripped-off Ruscha's iconic books, so much so that the appropriation and paraphrasing of Ed Ruscha now constitutes a genre of its own. VARIOUS SMALL BOOKS collects ninety-one of these projects, showcasing the cover and sample layouts from each along with a description of the work. Tom's work will be exhibited at Gagosian Gallery, New York, opening 5th March 2013.
Cecilia Mandrile 'betweening' at CFPR
Dates: 7-11 January 2013
New York based artist Cecilia Mandrile has recently been working with CFPR Editions to produce a series of prints that explore differing approaches to printing and constructing image translucency. By using a UV printer the initial proofing process will develop multiple pass print methods and substrate layering options enabling the possibility of using white ink and novel substrate options (such as glassine paper). The breadth of the project may include around five separate editioned prints that are part of an ongoing series of works entitled Betweening
