ATLAS: Artists’ Books, Artists’ Objects and Lithographs
Time: 29 July – 8 October 2017
Location: Maitland Regional Art Gallery, Australia
We are happy to present artist’s book creator, participant of our Artist’s Book Triennials – Anne-Maree Hunter from Australia and her Exhibition of artist’s books and artist’s book objects “Atlas”.
“ATLAS draws together the love and the beauty to be found in maps. Maps are functional as well as works of art and have always been treasured and coveted for both reasons. We use them to travel and explore. They ‘map’ the known, the unknown and the imagined -“here be dragons”. A Cartographer devises and uses symbols to represent the world on paper but can never be wholly successful nor complete.
Maps and Atlas’ have long been made by hand and with the invention of various printmaking techniques such as Etching and Lithography, they have been reproduced in multiples. So my background in Printmaking and Artists Books perfectly marries with the world of Maps and Atlas’.”
