Having passed in 2001, “Indelible Mark” will bring together a wide selection of Esler’s prints and paintings for the first time since his last solo exhibition at the Nickle Galleries in 1994. Esler’s willingness to experiment is one of the defining characteristics of his artistic practice. He challenged traditional printmaking methods, pushing the limits of the medium through this creative experimentation and his own plate-making techniques.
Established senior artist Edwards also values experimentation and challenging traditional art mediums. He successfully translates his painterly practice onto complex three-dimensional canvases, creating painted naval ship constructions which represent a broad metaphor for industrialization, loss and destruction.
