Raymond Arnold, a Tasmanian Life
Printmaker and painter, greatly influenced by the rugged compelling beauty of Tasmania’s west coast.
Raymond Arnold was born in Victoria in 1950 and moved to Tasmania in 1983. Under the influence of the island’s natural environment, Raymond developed his career to become a printmaker and painter of international reputation. Today, his legacy to Tasmanian art is already well established and he is a driving force in the discourse around land/art issues within Tasmania.
Raymond has held more than 50 solo exhibitions and participated in group shows in Australia, Europe and the USA. His work can be found in the collections of the Imperial War Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Bibliotheque Nationale and the Musee Courbet in France, as well as the National Gallery, the Australian Parliament House and all state galleries in Australia.
