Artist Profile Issue 39 from Artist Profile on Vimeo.

THIS ISSUE OF ARTIST PROFILE focuses on painters who make prints. We want to understand a painter’s relationship to the rather mystical powers of printmaking and the social and cultural engagement implicit in printmaking, which have left their mark on the work of many painters. Not all painters make prints, so these important, yet often unpredictable encounters are closely examined in this issue, especially in the essays by Jeremy Eccles, Michael Kempson and Lesley Conran.

The upcoming 10th anniversary of Artist Profile in September is exciting us here. To kick it off, we have partnered with the Orange Regional Gallery in Central-Western NSW to present a survey of 160 contemporary Australasian painters and their paintings. Deputy Editor Lucy Stranger and I have curated the exhibition from the magazine’s featured living painters. The exhibition, ARTIST PROFILE: Australasian Painters 2007 – 2017 will run from Saturday 8 July to Sunday 10 September 2017. We would love to see all our friends who have supported Artist Profile over the 10 years at the opening on 8 July in Orange.
