Tattooed Unconscious Unicorn (Artist proof)

Etching – framed

(H) 105 cm x (W) 90 cm

Item condition: New


Jeff  Gardner  is an established print maker and painter who also writes and illustrates creative verse. Jeff uses the traditional dry point printing technique.

Graduating in 1983 with a Bachelor of Arts, Fine Art – Painting from the Victorian College of Arts, Jeff Gardner was awarded the National Gallery Society Scholarship. Jeff Gardner is a painter, print maker, creative writer and archival picture framer. “Drawing an etching is a bit like meditation and you invariably enter into the ‘quiet zone’ of inner thought.”

Jeff is a bit like the unicorn, somewhat illusive and hidden from view but when he steps into the light, through his art, we see a truly original and awesome artist at work who is totally committed to the craft of art and the art of imagination.

This  is a copper plate etching. This one is an artist’s proof. The plate has yet to be editioned however there are several turquoise blue A/P’s available. The edition will be printed later in 2020.

“The unicorn is a difficult animal to catch – it’s beauty and majesty is a mythical illusion. Embedded in our subconscious are the tattoos of how we individually define beauty.”

The Tattooed Unconscious Unicorn is currently on display at Cascade Art, 1A Fountain St. Maldon.
