A purple patch for ‘Caravan Of Despair’

My limited edition artists’ book ‘Caravan Of Despair’ has been acquired by the State Library of Victoria as well as being shortlisted for both the Burnie Print Prize and the Northern Beaches Artists’ Book Awards.

Author: Peter Ward

I have had over 40 years of experience as a professional artist in Australia and Italy working in the media of serigraphy, painting, collage, ceramic and relief printmaking. From 2012 I have concentrated entirely on linocut. I feel that linocut, whilst a simple and direct printmaking technique, offers endless aesthetic possibilities. It has a robust physicality and despite the considered nature of printmaking the results for me appear spontaneous and immediate.
