Steve Mumberson: two person show in New Zealand
13 August - 10 September 2012, Kerikeri (NZ)

Art at Wharepuke presents new work by two leading UK printmakers:

Steve Mumberson's Rotten Boroughs and David Ferry's The Stately Aquariums of England

Stephen Mumberson's Rotten Boroughs is a series of ten colour mono relief prints that offer a contemporary update of an 18th Century electoral scam.  Elections in scarcely populated constituencies, or Rotten Boroughs, would be fixed by wealthy landowners to allow the eldest son to be sent to Parliament.
These works are a contemporary view of the issues that exist under the skin of modern London life and offer  a reflection on the state of a modern Britain that has suffered major economic and social changes that many feel have overwhelmed society and lead to a questioning of post war ideological values.

Images in the show can be seen here.
