Paul Coldwell in conversation with the artist Sean Caulfield04/01/2019
Sean Caulfield, born in Rhode Island, USA, is a Centennial Professor in the Department of Art and Design at the University of Alberta Canada. He is a leading figure within printmaking, working across a broad range of media, from intimate mezzotints through to large scale relief prints and installations. He has exhibited extensively throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, and Japan, received many grants and awards and his work is held in numerous public and private collections.
Caulfield’s creative research involves the production of artist’s books, prints, drawings and installations that explore the impact of technology on the environment and our bodies. Specifically, he is interested in creating visual images that blur boundaries between the biological and the technological, the organic and the mechanical, and challenge viewers to consider the implications of this merging.
Most recently the exhibition and resulting publication Printmaking in the Anthropocene: Visual Research from the University of Alberta, was co-organized by Sean Caulfield and Joan Greer as part of a broader initiative entitled Change for Climate: Art for Change to coincide with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Cities and Climate Change Science Conference held in Edmonton, Alberta in March 2018.
Paul Coldwell is an artist, Professor in Fine Art at the University of the Arts London and a member of the editorial board of the journal Print Quarterly. He has recently been awarded an AHRC Network Grant for an interdisciplinary project exploring how we ‘Picture the Invisible’ and is working towards an exhibition of new work for the Sir John Soane’s Museum London for July 2019.
This event is jointly organised by Chelsea College of Arts and Print Quarterly.
