Overview

Trevor Price specialises in drypoints and etchings that are handmade and hand printed in his studios in London and St. Ives.

Trevor studied at Falmouth and Winchester Schools of Art and at the age of 28 was elected a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and is currently the societies Vice President. Trevor exhibits widely throughout Europe, with regular solo shows of both paintings and original prints.

 

His work is held in various collections including the Ashmolean Museum (Oxford), Guangdong Museum of Art (China), Yale University (USA), The Office of Public Works (Dublin), and The Bank of England. Price has won several national printmaking awards, and on a number of occasions been an invited selector for the annual National Printmaking Exhibition held at the Mall Galleries in London.

 

Trevor spends a lot of time in St Ives drawing the surroundings and has taken great influence from preceding artists Ben Nicholson and William Scott who too had a connection to Cornwall. Other artistic influences include Pablo Picasso, Freda Kahlo, and Cecil Collins. For Trevor, it is the opportunity to experiment and the diversity of technique that draws him to a medium. Currently, most of his prints are drypoints of forms, usually on zinc or Perspex, which are made by drawing on the surface with a soldering iron and then printing from those marks made, then carefully pressing a dremel by hand to the paper to create a very distinct 2D relief finish.
