Object Detail

Graeme Cornwall has a long-established career as an artist and master printmaker with a specialty in the stone method of lithographic printing. Cornwall describes this process as “very seductive, very magical, and beautiful”. Unlike other printing techniques, this method allows the production of works on paper to obtain a wide range of tonal qualities.

Having studied in both Auckland and Britain, Cornwell spent an extended period working and studying for a PhD in Australia. After a 10-year absence, he returned to New Zealand and took up a teaching position in Hawke's Bay, later establishing himself in Nelson.

Cornwell’s work is held in public and private collections in New Zealand and Australia and throughout Europe. Although drawing, painting and sculpting often, his own print work is exhibited rarely, his work emerging after long gestational periods of up to seven years, having been conceived and executed in virtual secrecy.
