Chiaroscuro is the treatment of light and shade for dramatic effect in drawing, painting and printmaking. It is the effect of contrasted light and shadow created by light falling unevenly or from a particular direction, on something or someone.
Chiaroscuro is thought to have originated before the Renaissance; this exhibition seeks to show the work of contemporary artists using this traditional practice.
Artists include Lorraine Biggs + Lila Meleisea, Tanmaya Bingham, Robert Boynes, Sybil Curtis, Doble & Strong, Shannon Doyle, Michael Edwards, Rachel Ellison, Todd Fuller, James Guppy, Waratah Lahy, Tasman Miller, Helen Mueller, Peter Nilsson, Sara Sweet and Lezlie Tilley.
Paul Smith is selling his beautiful Charles Brand press and all the studio equipment.
If you know of anyone who is keen to purchase a press, it’s a real bargain.
The press and 4 blankets (etching and embossing), rollers (one huge big bertha and several small soft and hard rollers), plan cabinets and other studio equipment is offered at $5,000 (ono). The press bed size is 1530mm x 915mm.
The buyer must pay for its removal. Paul has moved it several times with the help of a reliable engineer so he can help with the organisation.
Paul lives on Scotland Island, so it is not as simple as it might appear to move the equipment.
Please contact Paul through his website.
