Artist - Pete Williams
Friday 25th May — Sunday 1st July 2012
This exhibition marks the culmination of work which Williams began during a three – month
residency at Aberystwyth Arts Centre. Initially consisting of drawings, photographs, notes and
ideas it has transformed into prints and large-scale works produced specifically for Chapter.
Utilising traditional methods of printmaking — woodcuts/engraving, lithography and stone —
Williams uses print as a vehicle with endless possibilities. Each journey is mapped and logged
in the form of a series of drawings and photographs that ultimately become realised as large
woodcut block and prints, displayed here side by side on the Caffi Bar walls. The pace, time
and distance is logged, which in turn informs the title of each work.
A passion for running is a key inspiration in the work including the inspirational views
experienced during Williams’ ‘journeys’ and the pace of running — methodical and rhythmic —
which is replicated in the working and cutting of the block.
