Vince Bray, 2020, Hillside Moondara
The Umbrella Print Commission is an opportunity for audiences to purchase stellar work by celebrated artists at an entry-level price point by becoming a member. This offer draws upon the success of Umbrella's artists and its printmaking community at large. The commission features acclaimed artists and members Jill O'Sullivan, Susan Peters Nampitjin and Vincent Bray. In 2020 they each editioned 30 new prints to be purchased individually or as a bundle. The artist proof of each edition will also be held as part of Umbrella's print collection.
Umbrella’s inaugural Print Commission was made possible through the generous support of Ron McBurnie of Monsoon Publishing. Vincent Bray’s prints were also made possible by the hand-colouring efforts of Umbrella’s volunteers - we thank them immensely for their time and contribution.
Vincent Bray was introduced to printmaking by Bryan Dean who was the lithograph tutor at what was then the T.A.F.E. College at Kelvin Grove in Brisbane, where Bray had his first show. Anne Lorde grew Bray’s interest and capacity in the art form some years later. Bray was impressed by her woodcuts on snappy gum (a scrubby tree) but quickly learned it was not as easy as Lorde had made it look. Bray next tried etching on zinc plates, taught by his friend Jo Forster. He has continued to learn more about printmaking throughout his art career alongside his painting practice.
