Eventide – print exchange, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, curated by Rona Green. Exhibition dates 13 May – 3 July 2016

 

Rona Green regularly works with galleries and artists to curate themed print exchanges. I was thrilled to be invited to participate in Eventide; a period of transition when day meets night. It is an in-between space – a place of transformation. This theme is explored by 31 Australian artists who each consider this magical time through the exacting medium of relief printmaking.

Art Dreaming – group exhibition

Lost and found 2015 – this piece is part of Art Dreaming, and exhibition of work by artists from GANEAA (Goulburn North East Arts Alliance). It is current from September 19 – October 18, 2015  @ Wangaratta Art Gallery 2.

This print is made using a lino block that has been cut up, inked separately and put back together, like a puzzle, before printing. Edvard Munch used this process with some of his woodblocks. I like using this approach for compositions with simple shapes and separate blocks of colour. Many of my birds are printed in this way.

Lost and found was my ‘demo’ model for the Puzzle print workshop that I  ran for GANEAA and the Across the Arts Festival in May this year.
