Object Detail

Edward Dolores is a long-established printmaker from Auckland. He commenced printmaking at the Auckland Society of Fine Arts where he studied from 1979-1985 under tutors Rodney Fumpston and Carole Shepheard. His prints were selected for the 1988 BNZ Art Award exhibition held at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and are held in corporate collections in New Zealand. For over 20 years he exhibited annually in The Printmakers’ group shows at the Auckland Society of Arts and other galleries in Auckland and Wellington. Dolores uses traditional printing methods of acid etching on zinc plates to produce the design, applying aquatints to the plates and building up the print with several pressings.

Night Garden was created in the 1980s as a one off study. Edward, renowned for his flora designs, used heightened contrast in his representation of the plant and leaf forms. This was a departure from his usual style of using vivid colours and was an experiment into darkening the tone of his work.
