Stephen Mumberson and Chris Pig

A new exhibition at Art at Wharepuke in Kerikeri
features etchings and relief prints of two of the UK’s most well-known printmakers
Stephen Mumberson (MA RCA, RE) and Chris Pig.

Mumberson’s etchings relate to the city of London, where he lives,
 and come from everyday observations of the street life
and imagery sourced from popular British culture.

Chris Pig makes lino cutting and wood engraving of the highest quality.
He was joint winner of the Society of Wood Engravers’ Award at Originals 09 in London.
Pig recently returned from London, after a short time living in Spain,
and there are works in this show from both Spain and London.
His work features characters encountered in the less salubrious parts of town
as well as images of intimacy and domesticity.

 The works are on display 1-19 December 2010.
See Art at Wharepuke's website  for more information.
