Internationally recognised printmaker Greg Fuller will utilise his time in residency at The Lock-Up installing the group exhibition COMMON GROUND PACIFIC, taking place at both the University Gallery and Curve Gallery.
In December 2016, Greg and fellow artists Jason Hicklin and Tracy Hill embarked on an innovative research project in the Hunter region, through an international residency, also at The Lock-Up. All three artists investigated the landscape of the Hunter estuary, and explored the historical, geographical and human connections between it and the coastal environments of Mersey Estuary in Liverpool, England.
It was also during this residency, that the work of these three artists were presented in the exhibition EVERY BREATH at The Lock-Up, curated by Andrew Styan.
Greg, Jason and Tracy now return to Newcastle to present COMMON GROUND PACIFIC, an exhibition of their visual reinterpretations of the Hunter landscape as experienced through their walking journeys.
ABOUT GREG FULLER
Greg Fuller’s work is a study of the landscape that he personally experiences. He develops topographical drawings as a lifeline in his approach to creating prints and paintings.
Greg creates works that act as a catalyst for the viewer’s own imagination and experiences. A celebration of the quiet realities of life, whose beauty and subtlety are often hidden behind our familiarity with the ordinary.
Greg states, ‘I live an ordinary life in an ordinary place; it is only when I make work about this that I realise how extraordinary my life and place really are.’
Born in Liverpool (UK) Greg studied Fine Art at Wirral Metropolitan College and Art and Design at Bolton University. He is a member of the Manchester Academy of Fine Art and is currently the technical demonstrator in Printmaking at the University of Chester.
