JOHN MCGOWAN PRINTMAKER – 2017

A Printmaker’s Retrospective,

Yarrow Gallery, Oundle  

November 4th – 18th 2017

John has been making original prints for over 50 years; the exhibition will bring together some 90 prints and proofs from 1963 to the present. His early print work, in the 1970s, at Bulmershe College and as an independent artist, stemmed from a study of systematic colour relationships. Later in the decade a growing interest in photography led to experiments with photo-screenprinting. He spent several years working with master printer Peter Pretsell at Northampton College of Art.

His printmaking practice developed radically in 1979/80 when he began a series based on images of the Northampton Arm of the Grand Union Canal. Prints are now produced in small editions in his own studio near Peterborough

He is mainly known for his screenprints of the British Industrial heritage: Dockside warehouses (now in the Museum of London’s collection), Signal Boxes and a recent Paper Mill Suite. He still continues to experiment with print techniques and subject matter, particularly through a 25 year long “cubist” series.

John taught Art at Oundle School from 2000 to 2007. It was in the Yarrow Gallery in 2003 that he became re-acquainted with the prints of John Piper, whose work continues to provide inspiration.
