For the past two exhibitions of the Association of Pinoyprintmakers (A/P) at the CCP, the printmakers engaged in the process of printmaking and its continual evolution and calibration with the times. For their 2016 show at the CCP, the group previously known as the Printmakers Association of the Philippines or PAP, goes back to basics, so to speak. Entitled Papers and Layers, the printmakers are tasked to engage themselves with works on paper. However, this does not necessarily mean that they are relegated as “traditional”, for printmaking is vital to the changes of the visual arts landscape. Though the works may be rendered on paper, the final prints may be transposed as sculptural works on paper, installation art with paper, and such. Hence, they just do not pander on one surface but rather give it layers by how they work with images as they add/press them on surfaces.
