Biography

Barton Hargreaves is an Artist and Printmaker whose diverse practice has developed simultaneously with the technological developments within digital print. He makes indoor and outdoor installations, and fine art prints using digital and more traditional processes such as Etching and Screen Print, often mixing them all up together. The figure or indeed the absence of the figure through means such as the silhouette and cut out is used to explore themes of Time and Space, Being and Non-being; issues which he sees as central to the experience of being human. He studied at the Royal College of Art and is currently Digital Print Tutor at the Royal Academy Schools. He regularly exhibits at the RA Summershow, and has been commissioned to create large-scale works for the Jerwood Space, and Northern Print Biennale.
