In printmaking terms, the proof exists as evidence of a spark of thought that can carry forward monumental actions, or one that fades as other ideas are born and take root. We, the printmakers, use the proof as our guiding light, an element embedded in our practice, critical, urgent, essential, intrinsic. For us, without the proof, there can be nothing, no growth, no progress, no expansion.

In tandem with printmaking, notes, sketches, drafts, scribbles exist also as types of proofs. These modest materials are the landscape of signifiers, of thoughts, crystallising artworks, poems, songs, projects, buildings and compositions.

Such proofs might be said to hold an elusive charge cast against future realities. In themselves they represent that which motivates us, as artists, to dig deep and come up with the goods. In an age of the ephemeral, of movement and flux, the proof retraces a moment when time stilled to distil an idea.
