Catherine Cartwright

Where the Children Play is a printmaking animation by Catherine Cartwright. It is a reflection on where sport begins; in the imaginations and playtime of childhood. The children are scratchy drawn print animations overlaid onto footage of Exeter’s Sandy Lane with a soundscape of a 1950s international rugby game. The analogue-style look and ‘old-school’ commentary project the viewer into a dreamscape of carefree action.

Catherine’s printmaking animation has been selected for The Print + Animation Showcase, Oregon, USA

The  Animation + Printmaking Showcase was organised as part of Flux; Southern Graphics Council International Conference. The artists responded to an SGCI call for entries for short animated films created through printmaking processes: wood cut, letterpress, etching, silkscreen, rubber stamps, stencils, etc.  Over 55 submissions were received from all over the world and 33 were selected for this showcase. The films span the entire range of print techniques and also give some new voices to the world of animation. Organisers Marilyn Zornado and Barb Tetenbaum will also be screening their latest collaborative pressure-printed animation “French Film”.

This exhibition was organised by Marilyn Zornado, independent animator and instructor, Pacific Northwest College of Art and Oregon College of Art and Craft; and Barbara Tetenbaum, artist, printer and head of the department of Book and Print, Oregon College of Art and Craft; with assistance from Cris Moss, director and curator of the White Box.!animated-types-festival-/cqes
