This is one of the prints in our collection. It was made in 1975. The place where it was made is unknown.
About the Work
Looking at Rodney Fumpston’s work reveals a life devoted to printmaking practice. Along with the sensuous colours and richly nuanced surfaces, you’ll discover an artist of enormous discipline with the eye of a perfectionist.
While this may suggest an abiding interest in overcoming various technical hurdles and pleasure in solving printmaking puzzles, the final work is not intended to reveal difficulty and exertion, but rather to appear ‘light’ and effortless.
