The 2019 Gertrude Edition is emblematic of London-based Renee So's long-standing exploration and repetition of the Bellarmine, a domestic vessel depicting a bearded man with origins in Rhineland during the 16th and 17th century. Created especially for Gertrude Contemporary, this sculptural edition of 50 has been individually hand-cast in black Jesmonite from a clay master.
Instigated in 2002, the Gertrude Editions are an annual initiative developed to raise funds in support of Gertrude Contemporary exhibition and studio programs, and to promote the connection between current Studio Artists and previous generations of leading Australian artists who have held studios at Gertrude Contemporary.
