Redplate Press David Armes

I am a visual artist working with print, language and geography. My work is frequently site-specific and considers how sense and experience of place can be represented, with source material including automatic writing, anonymous conversations and oral history. It explores the ways we describe liminal states and how landscape shapes understanding. I work primarily with letterpress printing on paper and the final forms can vary in shape and size from large scroll installations to artists’ books and chapbooks. Ultimately, through using what was once an industrial print process, I am interested in where the multiple meets the unique, where the ephemeral meets the archival.
