Gary Tricker (1939-2021)

Gary Tricker is known for his witty, whimsical, if not surreal images expressed through the etching print medium. His father worked for New Zealand Railways and for Gary his childhood was spent in a house where steam engines were part of everyday life. These images and sensations are found again and again in his etchings, which incorporate the glory of steam and evoke a method of transport for which we all hold a certain nostalgia.

In conjunction with his fascination for the feline species we have a combination, in his etchings, of the feline image together with his fascination for steam and railways, which are irresistible.

Of himself he states 'Printmaking is my visual lifeline that gives its magnificence' much of himself is found in his works.

Twice the recipient of Queen Elizabeth II Arts Council award he has, since 1976 been a full-time printmaker.
