Whisky Galore!

Stephen has collaborated with Robert Graham 1874 on the Court of Redonda whisky collection. Initially six distinctive expressions featuring artwork from the Court of Redonda installation

The whiskies are available on the Robert Graham 1874 website and limited edition prints of the paintings featured are available here

‘The Court of Redonda was always intended to be a reverential celebration of ‘Everyman’. An elevated toast of those that fanfare frequently passes by. That is you, me, the doctor, the pharmacist, the florist, the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker….
Whisky, as those of us that explore this realm know, is that most nuanced, multi-faceted, complicated and sophisticatedly poetic of all the distilled juices. In this sense it is as diverse, complex and tender as ….… all of us.
This is a collaboration, a while in the making: Grown up art meets grown up whisky. Take time; enjoy.’ SC

Chapters

‘This display showcases the diverse and inventive work of Royal Academician Stephen Chambers. Bringing together multiple series, Chapters is as much about concentrated stages of artistic process as it is an eclectic representation of collaboration in print. Produced using different techniques, in tandem with several master print studios, the resulting sets demonstrate a spectrum of the visual possibilities within the medium of printmaking, whilst retaining the strong narrative of Chambers’ work.’ RA

‘Each set begins with an idea, is made in a compressed period of time and once concluded, abandoned. Consequently, each set represents a moment and a collaboration. Each having its own identity. I, as their maker, am the only constant. The results: chapters.’ SC

New screenprint supports apprentice training at The Print Studio, Cambridge

Stephen has recently worked on a new screenprint called ‘Nettle’ with Kip Gresham, Alan Grabham and Callum Rose at the internationally renowned Print Studio in Cambridge. It will be part of a portfolio of five prints alongside work by Willard Boepple, Nigel Hall, Peter Randall-Page and Alison Wilding.

Income from the sale of the portfolios will be used to support the training of Callum Rose, the studio’s new apprentice. The studio Master Printer, Kip Gresham, plans to instruct him in the coming years and is keen to pass on his experience. After almost 50 years as a fine art print maker, there is much technical, collaborative and aesthetic skill to impart. Callum represents a new generation of printmakers who might continue to innovate and excel. The work in the portfolio is a testament to his considerable ability.

Please contact info@theprintstudio.co.uk to express interest or request further details.
