Local Artist, Rhett Martyn is currently having editioned prints his plates for his work entitled, ‘Horse’ by printer Sbongiseni Khulu.
After recently opening her solo show entitled Ninth Floor our printmakers are still hard at work on her large scale woodcut in an edition size of 10.With the printing process requiring patience and meticulous precision, we could not be more satisfied to have Sbongiseni Khulu and Oliver Dewey-Gartner working on this piece.
Oliver Dewey-Gartner has also been responsible for printing ‘Misregistration’’ by Mary Wafer – an etching ,with an experimental side, that fits into her latest body of work for Ninth Floor.
