Glasgow Print Studio presents an exhibition of prints by national and international artists who use colour to explore the beautifully expressive and varied mark-making techniques of intaglio printmaking.

Intaglio is a traditional printmaking technique in which marks are scratched or etched onto a surface such as copper or steel, creating grooved lines or textures that ink is trapped within. The ink is then transferred from the textured surface of the plate onto paper when passed through the press.Through this process, the paper is transformed and given a sculptural quality that is virtually impossible to achieve via any other process.

Alistair Gow is a Glasgow based artist working primarily with printmaking. His images come from a fascination with things that present potential: blank spaces, billboards, roads, and pictures hanging on walls are recurring motifs. The practice of printmaking, in particular the process, craft, and community of a workshop, is essential to how he thinks about and makes art.


Gow graduated with a BA(hons) in Painting and Printmaking in 2010. Since 2014 he has worked for the Glasgow Print Studio, specialising in intaglio and relief printing, working as collaborating printmaker with artists to create editions of prints, teaching classes and supporting the Studio’s membership.
