Winter Exhibition at Studio 125 Gallery, 2019
British born and Auckland based artist Kevin Osmond transforms seemingly mundane components and methods through meticulous repetition. The viewer is offered an escape from everyday life into a mesmerising and idyllic universe. In this show, titled Transition, he uses the medium of embossed wood block prints on paper, investigating natural and celestial phenomena within a circular print format, in a range of sumptuous primary colours and sizes. Colour and texture via embossed lines within the printed paper are employed to explore an optical element of three dimensions rising outward from the two-dimensional format.
