PROMENADE: Mark Graver
Wed 05 Oct - Sat 29 Oct 2011
Mark Graver moved from England to Kerikeri, New Zealand in 2003 where he established the Wharepuke Print Studio, New Zealand’s only dedicated acrylic resist etching workshop. In 2009 he and partner Tania Booth set up Art at Wharepuke, a gallery specialising in international printmaking and in 2015 The Wharepuke Art Park Sculpture Trail.
His current practice involves working with printmaking, digital video and sound with interest concentrated at the point where these approaches meet and cross – the editionable act/event/encounter of pulling a print or screening a film, the re-presenting of this act/event/encounter and its relationship with memory, place and time.
