Raymond Arnold: The Spectacle of Nature
A Tasmanian Monograph
Quintus Publishing 2008
224 x 204mm, hardcover, 63 pp
Raymond Arnold’s legacy to Tasmanian art is already well established. His prodigious and masterful body of work in printmaking places him in the foremost rung of practitioners of the discipline in this country and beyond.
His contribution to contemporary art in Tasmania extends through his teaching and his many ‘collegiate’ contributions
to the community of artists in this state and beyond. He has been, and remains a driving force in the discourse
around Land/Art issues, so vital within this contested area in Tasmania.
His adoption of the West Coast of Tasmania as his home is typically inclusive, and he continues to articulate this
unique landscape while introducing others to its rugged, compelling beauty and the many vital issues surrounding its
past, present and future.
Sean Kelly has an extensive engagement with contemporary art in Tasmania, spanning over thirty years. He holds a
Masters of Fine Art from the Tasmania School of Art and has worked as a teacher, university lecturer, arts
administrator, writer and curator. He is past Director of CAST (Contemporary Art Services Tasmania), past president
of CAOs (Contemporary Arts Organizations Australia) and was Program Manager of the National Sculpture Factory in
Cork, Ireland. He was inaugural editor of the journal Contemporary Arts Tasmania and has written numerous articles,
catalogue essays and reviews.
