We love the discipline of printmaking and are eager to educate everyone who walks into the gallery about its various forms.
Part of this education includes showing the extended works by our artists and taking the time to discuss each artist’s practice. Regardless of whether the viewer favors the work, we believe the conceptual thought, choice of medium, level of skill in the application, the artist’s message and the commitment to their work is to be valued and admired… and it is!
As part of April’s Bellarine Printmakers exhibition, visitors were presented with 37 of Soula’s life drawings casually pinned to the wall. Visitors were able to see (partly) what it takes for Soula to be able to sit in front of a life model with a copperplate and begin drawing straight to the plate. The etching technique Soula chose for her Nudes required that she draw quickly to produce a confident line leaving no option for corrections during the drawing process.
