Sims Reed Gallery is delighted to present a retrospective of prints by Fred Sandback (1943-2003).

The show will include the first screenprint he ever made in 1970 to his last lithograph in 2000, and will comprise a complete and thorough survey of all his print work in between. The first prints he ever made were simple in their execution, but as he became more enamoured and confident with the medium, they became more complicated and sophisticated and stretched from screenprints to linocuts, etchings, lithographs and aquatints. The show will also include two editioned string sculptures. There will be around 50 works in the show and prices will range from £2,800 - £45,000.
