WARREN EDITIONS opening night

Tom Cullberg, his son and Zhané Warren (Warren Editions)

Angolan artist-in-Residence, Kiluanji, inspecting Hentie's work

Friday Night by Tom Cullberg

Tom Cullberg’s etchings are an extension of his paintings (which explore aspects such as narrative, intimacy and the transient). The artist worked at the Warren Editions studio during March this year, and created three etchings made with soft ground and various aquatint applications. As starting points for his etchings Cullberg used references to his paintings as well as found images. Unsurprisingly, colour was vital in the production of these etchings - to the point that Cullberg mixed his own colours as he would when painting.

Messenger I and Messenger II (below) by Hentie van der Merwe

Zhané Warren approached Hentie van der Merwe June 2007 with the idea of creating a series of etchings, conceptually based on his music theatre project. For this project, the artist developed a series of masks to be worn by the main character namely ‘The Messenger’. These masks refer to various animals from the world of Nama (Khoi) folklore - such as the hare, lion, and eagle.

Warren Editions, established by Zhané Warren, publishes and prints original fine art prints. The aim of the studio is to introduce contemporary artists who are not primarily printmakers to the time honoured medium of etching. Warren Editions works in etching and other intaglio processes as well as monotype and takes a collaborative approach to develop the artist’s images to their fullest – if need be over an extended period of time.
