DKW report: April/May 2008

27th May 2008 by

What has been interesting in the last period at DKW is the range of techniques used by artists working there. From monotype, to etching, pochoir, lino and wood engraving, each artist had the chance to experiment with their technique(s) of choice. The resultant work is a testament to the diverse nature and collaborative environment of the workshop.

New Works by Wilma Cruise

23rd November 2007 by

David Krut Print Workshop has been collaborating with Wilma Cruise to produce three new prints: Harrismith, Chanticleer and I can(t) see. These three works were created to coincide with her current solo exhibition Cocks, Asses, & : I Can’t Hear, and were based on three sculptures created by Cruise. The prints address the issue of communication, or rather, miss-communication. Cruise was specifically interested in what could be called ‘pre-language’, or the gap that must be crossed in order for people and animals to communicate. Cruise explains that these works are “yet another exhortation to listen to the earth, to each other and to the animals.”

DKW Update – Aug 2006 – Nov 2006 PART ONE

13th November 2006 by


I just realized that my last post was the 31st of July. It seems that the last few months have run away with me entirely and so much has happened in the studio. I am slowly finding my way back onto the computer and am not so deep in the throes of editioning. This period of absence from the computer proved to be highly eventful and very inspiring in the studio and I apologise for the silence on my part. Regular updates are resuming, finally.
