Harry Seidler: Julian Rose House
Born in Austria in 1923, Harry Seidler brought modernist Architecture and the philosophy and visual language of the Bauhaus to Australia in the late 1940’s. Having studied under emigrant Bauhaus teachers such as Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer in the USA, Seidler moved to Australia in 1948, becoming an Australian citizen in 1958. The Julian Rose house was one of his first residential projects built in the northern Sydney suburb of Wahroonga.
The blocks of colours are hand cut out of MDF boards while the letters and numbers are hand cut out of Lino. Each are rolled with water-based inks and then hand printed onto quality printmaking paper. The irregularities in the application of colour and small marks on the final printed poster are not flaws but are characteristic of this printmaking technique, and add to the individuality of the piece.
