Gouache study of a detail for a Gawain print.

Daniel Bugg of Penfold Press and Clive Hicks-Jenkins have begun a long-term project to produce a series of fourteen editioned screen-prints on the theme of Gawain and the Green Knight. Clive Hicks-Jenkins has been exploring the subject in paintings and drawings since reading the Simon Armitage translation of Gawain published in 2007. The prints will be released sequentially at yet-to-be-agreed intervals.

The writer James Russell has produced an impressive collection of books about the British painter Eric Ravilious, and is the curator of the comprehensive and much praised Ravilious exhibition currently showing at Dulwich Picture Gallery. James will be lending support to the Penfold Press Gawain project, observing and writing about the creative processes between Daniel Bugg and Clive Hicks-Jenkins.
