My name is Aine Scannell, M.F.A. and I live in Scotland although I am originally from Ireland's south coast. Its funny that I ended up being one of those people who has two post graduate Masters degrees - one in painting and the second one in printmaking. Mind you it was when I became focused on printmaking that the fun really began for me as an artist. The thing is, you see, that I really do love the possibilities that this medium offers us and I can not understand how there seems to be a 'hierarchy' of materials and processes in the art world.
Well I think they are all wrong - and as far as I am concerned printmaking is thee best medium because it has its own very unique mark making characteristics and as an art practitioner let me tell you it's just a constant adventure. I mean I have been doing printmaking for about 15 years almost and there are still techniques and processes and materials that I want to explore.
So here I am in virtual space with artwork of all sorts for your perusal. There are large, medium and small size prints as well as installations and artists books . It hasn't been easy fitting it all onto the site - that is without being assaulted by an overflow of drop-down navigation tab bars ....................., so I have created a page called PORTFOLIO - which in effect is an image map.
Click on the link below to start the exploration - hope you enjoy...............
