Kylie Rusk, 17-28 March, Auckland

In her latest exhibition, Kylie Rusk continues to delve into her passion 
for the New Zealand landscape. 
Using lithographic print and paint, Kylie explores the subtle variation of colour, light and form, resulting in stunningly atmospheric works of art.

Kylie is highly interested in what the landscape holds for the individual 
in terms of memory, connection, and a sense of being. 
Travelling the coast and countryside, Kylie documents scenes 
which she then reproduces in the studio.

Kylie graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts 
from Elam School of Fine Arts in Auckland in 2007. 
Kylie has exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions, 
primarily working in lithograph prints and acrylic on canvas.

Three colour lithograph with a two colour blend, 61x28cm

Rusk’s speciality is lithography. 
This historic form of printmaking involves drawing, 
painting with tusche and etching onto stone, 
before printing the image on a lithography press. 
Her rich and unique prints represent multi-layered seascapes, 
presented in a painterly and moody style. 
Rendered with warmth and sensitivity, 
each edition is limited in number ranging anywhere from 20-50 prints.

Lithography demo in the gallery on Saturday 21 March, 11am-12pm.
Kylie has a small portable lithography press
she is able to transport to the gallery for the demo.
