Center for Contemporary Printmaking
In the Main Gallery
In the Lithography Room
A separate exhibition of works by South African Artist Stephen Hobbs, Landlocked City. For the past 20 years, Stephen Hobbs' practice has grappled with the complex productivity of Johannesburg's ever changing cultural life and tough landscape. From imaginary built environments to WWI razzle dazzle camouflage, Hobbs' experience working in the built environment as an artist and producer of curated events and public artworks is rendered back into his interests in the print workshop.
Stephen Hobbs, Pill Box, Hardground Etching
This collection of prints serves as a mini survey of works produced over the past 4 years, where his travel and research has spread as wide as World War II cannon batteries on the Western Cape Peninsula, to empty billboards and found texts sampled from Johannesburg’s extensive highway network, to his own building projects.
