Janice Kerbel (born Toronto, Canada, 1969) works in a wide range of media including light, audio, texts, publications and print. Her meticulously constructed has taken the form of plans, proposals, recordings, scripts and announcements for impossible or imagined scenarios. She studied at Emily Carr College of Art and Design, Vancouver, and Goldsmith’s College, London. She lives and works in London.

"Taking original letterpress posters and broadsheets as a starting point, Janice has applied the process of relief printing to produce work that relates formally to a musical score with the use of text and typographic conventions only. The placement of the words on the paper - the vertical movement from high to low - makes a visual reference to pitch; the movement across the paper - from left to right - implies the durational aspect of a musical composition. Janice and I explored numerous approaches within relief printing as the work developed. She experimented initially with laser cut MDF blocks and finally with magnesium plates developed from her own artwork files. Her aim was to make sure she had as much control over the image as possible. The image was subsequently proofed on to newsprint, an ephemeral material associated with the mass distribution and communication of ideas, images and information."

This print was produced for 'Below Another Sky'. The first collaborative programme developed by the Scottish Print Network, a partnership between Dundee Contemporary Arts, Edinburgh Printmakers, Glasgow Print Studio, Highland Print Studio, Inverness and Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen.

10 artists from Scotland and 10 from Commonwealth countries were invited to undertake research residencies during 2013 and 2014. Artists from Scotland travelled to Antigua, Baffin Bay, Bangladesh, Canada, India, New Zealand and Zambia; artists from Australia, Canada, India and Pakistan were on residency in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.

Each artist worked with one of the five print studios on the development of ambitious and innovative new work in print, taking full advantage of the excellent range of resources, equipment and expertise available through each organisation.
