Love Letter: A new exhibition at the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery
June 6, 2022 @ 8:00 am - July 5, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Nick Cave’s 2001 song, Love Letter, is one of the great ballads of its era and the inspiration behind a series of images by renowned Australian printmaker, David Frazer. The prints have received Nick Cave’s enthusiastic endorsement.
This new exhibition at the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery, Fitzrovia brings together the suite of prints that Frazer created. They explore emotions of longing nostalgia and isolation through his depiction of both people and landscape. The prints are also a great technical accomplishment, manipulating both linocut and woodcut with an expert hand Frazer lends gravity to his subjects and the original lyrics of Cave.
Exhibited to great acclaim in Australia, the Canberra Times described the series as having “a mesmerising complexity that is seductive and intriguing”.
As well as his prints illustrating Love Letter, we will be displaying a new exclusive series of prints that have been inspired by British singer Nick Lowe’s song, Lately I’ve Let Things Slide. Lowe will be performing at the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery on July 5 at the exhibition’s closing party.
