Paris-based artist, Marie Dargent, gives George Town a new tinge, hue and perspective through a complex series of processes that includes the ancient method of hand-printing on a stone lithographic press. The colours, composition and use of collage and photography recaptures Dargent’s transient emotions of George Town, in the same esprit as her series covering the cities of Istanbul, Venice, Paris and Kuala Lumpur. Dargent and her husband, photographer John Brunton were in Malaysia last year for an architectural heritage exhibition using the same technique.
Meet artist Marie Dargent in Victory Annexe, E&O Hotel today and tomorrow (6 & 7 JULY 2013) to learn the process of lithography, which is used for her collection of A Town Called George. Catch her from 2pm to 5pm on both days. More info: http://georgetownfestival.com/free/a-town-called-george
