Introducing selected Australian printmakers to Waiheke Island

‘CORE’ is an upcoming exhibition featuring fine art prints by established and emerging Australian artists taking place in July 2015 at Waiheke Community Art Gallery (WCAG), Waiheke, New Zealand. WCAG is situated on a 9,324 hectare picturesque Island (36 square miles), via a 45 minute ferry ride from Auckland Metro. WCAG enjoys a high level of patronage as its large visitor numbers reflect its status as a popular and picturesque holiday destination. Take a virtual tour of the gallery by viewing this youtube clip; WCAG is an Incorporated Society and receives support from Auckland Council and other major funders in the Auckland area. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=BG0YGLENTek

Exhibition CORE development and theme
Invitations to submit printmaking works responding to the theme ‘CORE’ were offered with some artists sourced from within the University of New South Wales Arts and Design (UNSW) faculty, student body and the Cicada Press print collections (https://www.artdesign.unsw.edu.au/research/collaborations-research-groups/cicada-press). However the complete selection of artists was not limited to this and instead diverged into the broader Australian print community. In all cases, artists where chosen for their skill, diversity and apparent visual language specific to their own practices.

The beauty of a print-on-paper exhibition is synonymous with being nice and close to the printed surface, to see how the ink sits upon or is infused with the fibres of the paper, the embossing which occurs with a raised matrix (plate) and of course the artists hand. To allow such an interactive viewing of works submitted for CORE, two dimensional prints were requested unframed so as to limit barriers (emerging curator, K. Kennedy).

CORE can, as a theme, be read in a myriad of ways. This is part of its charm and indeed artistic responses have ranged from childhood references, to child birth, core industry, the natural environment, social commentary through consumer culture and identity, the human condition, racism or cultural identity and history, politics, the landscape and national pride. CORE ideas can be translated in any printmaking discipline as best suits the conceptual and aesthetic approach of the responding artists. Silkscreen, woodblock, drypoint, etching, aquatint, mono print, collograph, lino cut and lithographic processes were undertaken in the production of various works in response to the CORE theme.
