JUROR: This is the first time The Contemporary Print will be accepting international artists and we are excited to have our first juror from the United Kingdom. Dr. Paul Laidler is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) and Senior Lecturer in BA Illustration / MA Multidisciplinary Printmaking, University of the West England, Bristol, United Kingdom. The main focus of Paul’s academic activities stems from the close relationships that exist between technology, ideas and making in the graphic arts – particularly in the area of digitally-mediated print and its many offshoots. He contributes to critical discourse in print as a curator and arts writer, and is an associate editor for the Intellect Journal ‘Drawing Research Theory and Practice’. 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 realising physical artefacts in the digital age. Over the years Paul has worked on print projects for artists such as Richard Hamilton, Lesley Dill, Joe Tilson, Gordon Cheung and Stanley Donwood.
