Having been introduced into printmaking at the age of 16, Satinder Parhar has developed his printmaking skills throughout his artistic career. He went on to complete a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at the University of Wolverhampton, followed by an MA degree. Specialising in dry-point etching, he has gone on to produce large scale prints which explores the concept of interstitial spaces.

 

“Through my etchings I question the relationship between space, form and the object. My work examines the structures which form these interstices, the interstitial spaces that are formed within and the intimate relationship between the two. What is this connection and why is it so harmonious? I am interested in producing a re-representation of an existing space which references this intimate relationship. The use of black and white in my work resembles the contrast between the interstice and interstitial space. The two colours oppose each other, yet simultaneously work together. The viewer has potential to be immersed within this re-representational space through the size of the prints”.
