Julian Page presents ~
THE CRYING GAME: Marcelle Hanselaar:
Book Launch and Print Exhibition
30 October - 2 November 2017
Herrick Gallery is thrilled to host a short but punchy exhibition of Marcelle Hanselaar’s complete portfolio of etchings: The Crying Game and to celebrate the presentation of a fully illustrated book about this powerful set of prints.
The book will be launched at the gallery and signed copies will be available to purchase during the exhibition and afterwards from Julian Page.
It will be the first time that this series is shown in its entirety.
Marcelle Hanselaar is a London-based Dutch painter and printmaker. Her latest set of etchings inspired by Otto Dix’s Der Krieg War prints series are a passionate response to present day violence. “When I see and hear the ongoing reports of wars, of the harsh things we do to each other, I feel I have to do something in order not to be complicit. Being an artist, all I can do is draw and in doing so to draw attention to what matters.”
The Crying Game prints are in the collection of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
