Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair 2022
3 – 6 November 2022
Following last year’s fantastic fair, we are so excited to participate in Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair 2022, presenting work by conceptual data artist Rachel Ara, fine art print-maker Elsa Money, and illustrator Minho Kwon. The artists have been invited to exhibit due to their varied approach to printmaking, whilst all finding a common thread in highlighting how our world is changing – politically, environmentally, and economically. We can’t wait to exhibit these fantastic artists, and we have some fun surprises you definitely won’t want to miss..
We have a limited number of VIP tickets for the opening night, the New Collectors evening and for general fair admission. Please email us at [email protected] if you would be interested in coming along to see us at WCPF 2022.

This much I’m worth [The self-evaluating Artwork] is a digital art piece that continually displays its sale value through a series of complex algorithms called “the endorsers”. At over 4m wide it is currently installed in our office that we share with AVR London and will be visible at the fair via a live video feed. Since its inception it has produced a daily print (a certificate of value). For WCPF 22, This Much I’m Worth will be programmed to produce a special Woolwich edition print every hour, on the hour. These will be auctioned to the highest bidder throughout the fair.
We are delighted to showcase Elsa Money who was one of the recently selected artists within our Summer Graduate Show 2022. Having studied at Camberwell, Elsa’s unique approach to the print process captivated us from the moment we saw her 3m long Saccharine floating from the ceiling of the student show. For WCPF we are working with Elsa to continue the series on a smaller scale whilst the focus remains on process, texture and subject.
“Nostalgic feelings surround these trees, simultaneously, a feeling of a greater presence within them, a history, a glimpse behind the curtain of what they have borne witness to in their lifetimes.”
RCA graduate Minho Kwon uses an intricate print process to produce his beautiful drawings that immediately draw you into their complex world of history, politics and architecture. The results are all-encompassing – detailed to the point of resembling an architect’s blueprint – beautiful drawings that have a powerful narrative behind them. The process gradually sees each drawing enlarged and reproduced over a number of times as it is continually re-worked by the artist.
Kwon was nominated for the 2013 Jerwood Drawing prize and the 2013 V&A illustration awards. In the same year, he had his first solo exhibition at Anise gallery, and in 2014 was exhibited by Anise Gallery at Art.Fair cologne. Kwon now lives and works in Korea and continues to work on notable large scale commissions.
