Dr Paul Laidler will be discussing his personal research as well as his curatorial project, Just Press Print. Laidler is a leading voice in the role of digital technologies in relation to analog print. His research explores the impact of digital technology within the field of fine art printmaking, focusing on the advantages of using the traditional collaborative print studio model when generating and archiving digital print data for a specific artist. He has compared traditional standards and benchmarks associated with the collaborative print studio as a means to reappraise the role of the master printer in the digital age and offer best practice methods for emerging digital print studios. As part of his work he has developed CFPR Editions as a collaborative print studio specialising in the production and realisation of digital print publications by artists. Over the years Paul has worked on digital print projects for artists such as Richard Hamilton, Therese Oulton, Lesley Dill, Joe Tilson, Paul Hodgson and Leo Baxendale.
