Four Squares by Ronnie Tallon - Exhibition Launch Thurs 5th Sept

This Thursday 5th September at 6pm Stoney Road Press will be launching a new box set of prints by Ronnie Tallon.

Square 5, intaglio, 2013

Four Squares is a limited edition set of eight etchings, hand-printed on Somerset paper in an edition of fifty copies, numbered and signed by the artist. The exhibition will be opened by Shane O'Toole and will run until October 6th.

I have been obsessed with the simplicity of the square from my earlier days as a practicing architect. I realised then that most buildings inevitably need to expand, to grow in a natural way, where the expanded structure retained an expression of entity. Various efforts at realising this necessity led me to developing a multi-cellular system of building based on a square – the most logical structural form, capable of expansion equally on all four sides, capable of expansion horizontally and vertically, capable of creating ever evolving space as expressed by Max Bill in his teachings at the Bauhaus. This theory was applied to the design for Galway University using concrete structure and with steel structure in the design of the Carroll Cigarette Factory at Dundalk, now adapted for educational use by the Dundalk Institute of Technology. The Carroll building expresses the freedom possible within the discipline of a rigid structural logic. This obsession with the square has inadvertently persisted within my more abstract drawings, allowing me extraordinary freedom of expression with the discipline of the square. It allows me to explore within very definite limits. This set of images is from a series based on four squares.

Experiments with Photography - Stoney Road Press & PhotoIreland Festival

Dates: 1 Jul - 31 Jul
Opening hours: Mon - Fri 10am to 5pm, Sat 13th - 11am to 4pm, Closed Sun

This July Stoney Road Press will be hosting the exhibition Experiments With Photography as part of the 2013 PhotoIreland Festival. The exhibition highlights the work of three artists who have worked at Stoney Road Press and used photography as a means or an end in their work:

Amelia Stein’s unique photographic tribute to her mother, LOSS AND MEMORY is on the face of it, the most straightforward photographic work in the exhibition. The real challenge was to find a way to bend the traditional giclée (digital reproduction) process to capture the deep velvety blacks of her traditional photographs, a characteristic essential to the success of this series of prints.

Dorothy Cross combines photography with etching to make her unique images.  In TEAR she uses her own dramatic photographs of breaking waves and combines these with an image from a traditional steel engraving to produce this intriguing set of images.  In GHOST SHIP she uses the photographic image combined with luminescent ink to produce photographs which quite literally, glow in the dark.

Sara Lee uses photography as a springboard to make her atmospheric woodblock prints.  She reduces and distills her own photographs before etching them and then combines them with two further printings from woodblocks.  The unique characteristcs of the grain of the wood become fused with the photographic image, further extending its meaning.

This exhibition offers a unique insight into the printing process at Stoney Road Press and illustrates the many ways photography can be translated into printed editions.

These beautiful landscapes are a mix of woodblock and polymer intaglio etching. Delicate layers of ink and the carefully seleceted grain of the wood suggest a swirling sky and rippling water, which add to the tranquil mood of the landscape. We are looking forward to displaying them for the first time at the fair, where the artist will be with us to sign the most recent prints of the edition.
