Kuala Lumpur, December 2014 – To wrap up the year 2014, HOM Art Trans is pleased to announce another exciting exhibition that will take place at their gallery in Ampang. Entitled Test Print, this exhibition is a debut showcase of a newly established group of printmakers called Cetak Kolektif.
Cetak Kolektif consists of Samsudin Wahab, Faizal Suhif, Sabihis Pandi, Zul Husni Mohd Ridhuan, Arson Ong and Hazul Bakar who adopt conventional printmaking techniques, such as linocut, woodcut and silkscreen printing, in their art-making.
“Printmaking is a medium that has less popularity now compared to other art-making processes like painting, drawing or sculpture,” said Bayu Utomo, director of HOM Art Trans. The aim of this exhibition is to generate interest in printmaking among Malaysian audience, thus elevating the practice of printmaking in the country.
Among the main objectives of Cetak Kolektif are to show the society the beauty of printmaking and help other printmakers in Malaysia to bloom and flourish. Besides this exhibition, the collective will also organise many other activities, including a printmaking workshop. Aside from emphasising conventional printmaking techniques, they also attempt to explore printing methods that are less practiced nowadays. This community aims not only to elevate and popularise the art of printmaking among younger generations but also to educate the public about this art medium.
Test Print will run from 30 December 2014 until 13 January 2015. There will also be a workshop demonstrating the process of linocut printing on 10 January 2015 at HOM Art Trans. The exhibition’s official launch is slated for 30 December 2014 at 8.30 pm and will be officiated by En. Juhari Said, a well-known Malaysian printmaker. The admission is free and everyone is invited.
The gallery is open from Monday to Friday from 11.00 am – 6.00 pm. For more information, please log on to HOM Art Trans website atwww.homarttrans.com
