2 – 26 July 2022
Title: Post-Contemporary Woodcut: Lines Of Labour by Raduan Man
Dates: 2 – 26 July 2022
Venues: G13 Gallery, Petaling Jaya
G13 Gallery is pleased to present Raduan Man’s 10th solo exhibition titled Post-Contemporary Woodcut: Lines of Labour by Raduan Man featuring 27 woodcut print and oil on canvas works.
The exhibition celebrates the evolution of Raduan’s artistic practice in woodcut technique on canvas that has been developed for over two decades. In honour of the humble medium, he has embraced the process by creating complex and sophisticated woodcut paintings illustrating domestic interiors inspired by a period of isolation during the pandemic.
“In this series, my aim is to elevate the status of woodcut by eliminating the concept of editions and to create unique major artworks in the form of woodcut print and oil on canvas”, said Raduan. The result is a body of mesmerising work depicting still life objects in a domestic setting, in dazzling colours and harmonious lines that create spatial perspective and tactile quality due to the repetitive relief print method. This process demonstrates the absence of direct paintbrush marks on canvas making the artworks distinctively Raduan’s. The exhibition runs from 2 to 16 July 2022 at G13 Gallery.
