Even with the introduction of social media and online curation, modern contemporary artists still seek representation with Berkeley Editions. One of these well-known artists is Craig Ruddy, who currently has the work ‘Dark Emu’ showing in the Archibald.
With the introduction of mass-production prints, there have been struggles for hand-made prints across the globe. Making handmade artwork costs so much in time, resources and patience alone, creating a higher cost for better quality works.
“Handmade prints will retain their value. With prints, the value of the print goes up as the artist’s career escalates.”
Berkeley Editions New Adventures
With lockdown restrictions easing across Australia, Robyn is looking forward to re-exploring Australian galleries and local art hot spots. She hopes to continue the Berkeley Editions legacy of building exposure for these crucial and important artists across Australia’s rural and remote areas. Local artists are a key foundation of our society and a way to imprint the memory of our time and our experience onto current and future generations. Berkeley Editions will continue to explore the hidden treasures our rural areas have to offer, and bring them to Australians everywhere.
