Sharon Baker’s exhibition Re-Cast presents her latest photopolymer intaglio prints. The prints bring to eye level the discreet, hidden-in-plain-sight, designs that we walk on every day; manhole covers, boundary boxes and drain covers, found at home and abroad.

Sharon re-casts these functional everyday pieces of metal, on paper, as singular printed images inspired as she says by ‘the art of Tapiés and the road worker’s spray can’.

The prints capture the physical characteristics of these cast-iron objects which she sees as markers of the values, history and organisation of urbanisation.
