From Melbourne to New York City (via Kew)

I met Damon Kowarsky at The Australian Print Workshop  – just one of the talented and friendly printmakers that one meets in such places. He is a hardworking artist who always seems to be showing in exotic locations.

However, a few weeks ago he had a show, Civitas, in Kew, right down the street from my work. As artist in residence at Trinity College he has been able to print his etchings at the school and display them in The Daley Gallery, their very nice, purpose built space. Damon is not only highly skilled in etching, his exquisite images are underpinned by solid drawing as evidenced by the two large scale drawings in this show, one of Melbourne and the other of New York.

 I loved these large (100 x 240 cm) charcoal drawings. Little did he know how those drawings would resonate for me, as I was only a couple of weeks away from landing in New York.
