Theodore Ereira-Guyer - Wired: Online Auction London Thursday, November 23, 2023 | Phillips
  • “When working with landscape, I am often considering how it is a receptacle and meeting place of both the past and the future.”
    —Theodore Ereira-Guyer


    Summer fruits and the garden turning to night (vii) is from a series of vibrant etchings by Theodore Ereira-Guyer. It is one of the first times the artist introduced such strong colour in his etchings, marking a new direction. Theodore drew inspiration from his travels to Pompeii where he witnessed a number of crumbling frescos as well as objects and people set in stone by the eruption of Vesuvius. This notion of eternal presence is intertwined in his practise, with a lot of his compositions addressing landscapes with particular emphasis on mountains and gardens.


    “Well...  I mostly work in print.... So, one of the things I find very important to me in the ‘print’ process — producing woodcuts and etchings — is that it allows me to break down the image-making process into stages. It allows me to consider form, concentrating and working on that… There are moments of speed and of slow time bound in each work.”
    —Theodore Ereira-Guyer
