PANDEMIC PRINT EXCHANGE (PPE) an artist run initiative by regional printmaker, Elaine Camlin.
As restrictions start to ease, numbers continue to fluctuate and advice changes daily, we find ourselves in a position unlike any we have experienced before. It is a time of confusion, as we scrabble to understand, where we yearn for more, to heal what is broken, and reflect on what we need to change.
The Pandemic Print Exchange (PPE) has provided participating artists with comfort, connection and creativity during isolation. Using a range of printmaking approaches each artist has navigated through the unknown, providing an individual interpretation of the pandemic crisis.
In late 2020 the full PPE collection will be launched online in a digital exhibition. Stay tuned for updates! Until then, here is a little teaser!
