December 2010: Victor Pasmore at White Ink

Victor Pasmore was a pioneer in the development of post-war abstraction in Britain in the 1940s and 50s and today is considered to be one of the key abstract artists of the twentieth century. December’s monthly exhibition comprises 34 prints by the artist which together represent an almost complete archive of the graphic work Pasmore produced at the White Ink printing studio in London in the 1970s. These Pasmore prints are all printer’s proofs from the personal collection of Cliff White who was director and master printer at White Ink.

The White Ink printing studio was active during the seventies and as well as Pasmore they worked with many leading artists of the period including Paolozzi, Frink, Nolan, Kitaj, Tilson, Blake and Smith. Gordon House and Cliff White set up White Ink around 1970, working from a top-floor studio space in Lant Street, South London. The pair went on to join forces with the Gormans a few years later and White Ink moved to premises north of the river in Shelford Place for the remainder of the seventies.

Prints have always been an integral part of Pasmore’s artistic output. The earliest recorded prints to be exhibited were two abstract lithographs shown at the Redfern Gallery at the end of the 40s. In the early fifties Pasmore began work on a series of lithographs and linocuts of spiral motifs, one of which ‘Spiral Motif’ is included in the current collection. In the sixties Pasmore’s printmaking began to gather momentum. In 1965 he produced 4 lithographs at the Curwen Studio and was introduced to the Kelpra Studio where he began work on the ‘Points of Contact’ series of screenprints published from 1965 to 1974. In the early seventies Pasmore first began exploring the medium of etching at both White Ink and the 2RC Workshop in Rome, he continued to work with White Ink until they closed at the end of the seventies and with 2RC until his death in 1998.

Examples of the White Ink Pasmore prints can be found in several major collections including the Tate Gallery, British Museum, and the British Council.
