Mermaid Arts Centre presents Light Lines, an exhibition of Black Church Print Studio members showcasing contemporary print in Ireland today.


An extremely physical process, print is produced from a copper plate, or block, emerging from a chemical reaction or carving away at the surface and then pressed, the resultant image showcases all the risk, skill, talent and unpredictable outcomes involved in this process. Demonstrating the raw, visceral materiality of print, the slap, peel and press of the process, and how it reflects the diversity of experience of our times, both material and ephemeral, Light Lines seeks to represent the depth, complexity and diversity of contemporary print in Ireland today. Exhibiting artists are Nick Boon, Anja Mahler, Fiona McDonald and Louise Peat.
