The Carlton Gallery has the pleasure of introducing you to Hamish Taylor, monochromatic lino artist.
Fresh Prints is a collection of monochromatic lino prints. Most people are familiar with lino printing, having made a lino print in school art class. It is a fairly simple process of carving an image into a lino slab, rolling ink on it and pressing it onto paper.
The medium’s biggest challenge is also its most distinctive feature; there is no gradient of tone,
only hard edges. There is only full colour or blank white. There are four basic elements to work with: colour, blank, line and texture.
In this exhibition Hamish used a lot of architecture as subject matter because of its hard edges and the way it casts shadow, which suits the medium.
View this striking exhibition from Monday the 2nd to Sunday the 29th January 2023 at the Carlton Gallery, The Arts Junction, 36 Main Road, Katikati 3129.
Monday – Friday 9am to 4pm
Saturday – Sunday 10am to 2pm (and public holidays)
