Master printmaker, gifted teacher and artist, Cecil Skotnes believed that no one with talent should be denied the opportunity to train as an artist. To honour his legacy, the Michaelis School of Fine Art established a scholarship in his name. To this end twelve artists, each of whom were inspired by Skotnes in some way, have contributed work to the Homage portfolio. “I can think of no greater tribute than his peers participating in a project that will culminate in a scholarship that carries his name,” wrote John Skotnes, son of the artist, in the introduction. All the prints in this portfolio were printed on 250g Rives BFK. The printing processes used in the production of the prints include letterpress, lithography, chine collé and embossing, printed from linoleum and polymer blocks and aluminium plates. READ MORE
