Trevor Price

Trevor Price

Trevor Price (born 1966) became an elected member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers in 1994, and the Vice President of the Society between 2013-2018.

His art education started at Falmouth and then Winchester School of Art, with Pablo Picasso, Freda Kahlo, Ben Nicholson and Cecil Collins amongst his artistic influences.

 

The most recent series of works by Trevor are drypoint and engraved relief prints, handmade and hand printed by the artist.

His technique involves the use of a polycarbonate 2mm sheet, he carves and scrapes the plate with a drypoint needle and a dremmel.  This process is very time consuming and unforgiving if mistakes are made.  With ink then rolled over the surface, it is sent through an etching press with damp paper over the plate.

 

The artists intention is for the viewer to get lost in the mark making and abstractions when viewed close up, but from a distance for the images to become highly representational and almost photographic.  There is however no photographic process involved and everything is handmade and printed by hand.

 

With some, the paper is then stained to give a sense of antiquity and the feel of an old sepia photograph.

 

His work is held in various collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), the Ashmolean Museum (Oxford), the Fitzwilliam (Cambridge), Guangdong Museum of Art (China), Yinchuan Contemporary Art Museum (China), Yale University (USA), The Office of Public Works (Dublin) and The Bank of England (London).

He has won several national printmaking awards with the most recent being the Printmaking Today Award at the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers 2017 exhibition.

2020 A large relief print commission by China's National Academy of Painting exhibited at China's National Art Museum in Beijing, and then touring.

He shares his time between a studio close to Tower Bridge in London and the other in the heart of the artist community of St, Ives in Cornwall.

Nothing to do with art, but he is also a qualified lifeguard, and assists with coaching children in St. Ives Surf Life Saving Club.  He is also a National Champion i his age group for surf life saving 1km beach run.
