Daniel Schürer Exhibition and Open Studio
14 October - 16 October
Daniel Schürer, born in Germany, works as an industrial designer. As a balance to this more technical design work, he also pursues artistic activities like painting, printmaking and music.
As a water colour enthusiast, he is a member of Urban Sketchers Penang, where he participated in the exhibition “See George Town one drawing at a time” at Jetty 35 as well as the last exhibition at Hin Bus Depot. His range of bamboo lights, developed with a bamboo craftsman from Vietnam, has been exhibited at March Gallery and Anantara Resort in Hoi An, Vietnam. His other field of interest is printmaking, especially linocut prints. The reduction of a scene to black and white, the difficulty of estimating the outcome of the artwork during the process and the challenging production are all part of the interest in this activity.
This exhibition during Open Studios Penang is of linocut prints of typical street scenes in Hoi An, Vietnam, where Daniel lived for three years before moving to Penang. They are printed on brown worship paper that he bought on a countryside market in Ha Giang province.
Daniel will be on site at Coex doing demonstrations and available to answer questions on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th October 2pm-4pm. The exhibition can be visited during Coex opening hours: 14th (Fri) 10am-6pm, 15th (sat) 10am-10pm, 16th (sun) 10am-6pm.
