Rosemary Mortimer is an artist whose work is both political and decorative. In her paintings she juxtaposes classic New Zealand landscape scenery (of eg Coromandel's Matapaua Bay) with subtle tiles of subdivision plans for the same pristine areas of New Zealand coastline. Rosemary prints her limited edition works using the giclee method with museum quality inks onto archival quality 310gsm Hahnemuhle German etching paper.
Mortimer (1959 - ) graduated from Wellington Polytechnic School of Design in 1977 and has exhibited widely in solo and group shows including the Goodman Suter Biennale, Wellington City Art Gallery, Downlands Art Exhibition (Queensland) and the Pataka (Porirua Museum) Opening Exhibition. Mortimer was an 'Artist in Residence' for the QE11 Arts Council in 1988 and has won a number of prestigious awards including the BNZ Art Award for Printmaking. We have three prints of her Coromandel series of paintings in stock this afternoon.
