Rob Swainston

The basic print on paper remains the core of Rob Swainston’s practice, even as he mixes printmaking with installation, sculpture, painting, drawing and video. Rob reconfigures old prints and woodblocks in a constantly evolving process analogous the building up and tearing down of the social world. At The Barn, he worked on a handmade book and a large-scale woodblock print installation. The book collapsed images from recent exhibitions into a unified form and the installation was a labyrinth like maze created from steam roller prints on fabric.
