Soul Courageous (2018-2019)
Exhibition | 13-26 May 2019 at Fern Street Gallery, Gerringong | Opening event Saturday 18 May 2.00 pm – 4.00 pm.
Soul Courageous reflects a creative course that is more personal and emotive than previous printmaking series. Topics like love, joy and loss; fear, pride and doubt; belonging, regret and yearning. The heart of the series explores events and feelings rooted in my own story and life experiences. This reflection has been complemented with interpretations of the strange world we live in, and some individual personalities within it.
The series is created using the reduction linocut printmaking technique that is accessible in terms of scale and style that features a bold use of colour and is primarily founded in expressionism, fauvism and primitivism. Select influences can be seen in Picasso, Matisse, Basquiat, the early collages of Robert Motherwell and 1960’s and 70’s posters styling.
All limited edition prints measure 30 x 30 cm and can be purchased unframed for $300.00 including gst or in a timber matt black frame with double white matt art board and glass measuring 60 x 60 cm for $450.00 including gst. Each piece is editioned and signed and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Large scale canvas reproductions can be purchased on request.
