Stuart uses historical and alternative photographic print making processes to print his photographs of the NZ Landscape. Influenced by the Pictorialist and Tonalist movements of the 19th century his imagery is quiet; peaceful to the point of meditative. Lose yourself enough in the image, you might begin to hear the rhythm of the waves on the sand or the wind rustling through the bush. Here we find a respite from the chaos of modern-day life, a place to exhale and relax, for both the artist and the viewer.
Stuart’s prints are held in private collections in NZ, Australia and Asia.
