Through the months of July and August, One Craft Gallery are very pleased to welcome Ian Bertram as our guest artist. Ian is a printmaker based in Devizes and uses traditional ‘hand pulled’print making techniques such as collagraphs, mono prints and dry points to create a range of colourful, abstract pieces.
Although Ian doesn’t have any formal training in art, he has attended several short painting courses and he regularly attends a print workshop at a local college where he gets great support and encouragement from the tutor and other students.
Ian started taking photographs in the 1960’s and has continued ever since. With the advent of digital technologies Ian started to experiment with digital manipulation of photos and phot collage and from there, moved onto traditional printmaking.
You’ll find a colourful selection of Ian’s original prints and cards in the gallery.
