Craig McIntosh

New Zealand,

Growing up in Aotearoa, New Zealand, Craig McIntosh was introduced to carving at an early age. Craig has exhibited extensively throughout New Zealand since 2000, and from 2000-2004 he took part in the annual Seibu Netsuke exhibitions in Tokyo.

 

In 2013, McIntosh completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at the Dunedin School of Art, followed buy a Masters degree which employed a reversal of the traditional reductive approach to stone carving. His thesis acknowledged and asserted the importance of technology in creating context and meaning. Craig developed his own methodology of fabrication and construction with stone in a jewellery context, and he continues to question the relevance and currency of existing stone carving traditions in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

 

Since the completion of his Masters, McIntosh has exhibited internationally. In 2016 he was the inaugural recipient of Dame Doreen Blumhardt’s Gift and in 2017 produced the major solo exhibition Groundwork at Objectspace, Auckland. His first Australian solo show was ‘Topography’ at Funaki in 2018.
