For the second time I was one of only 25 printmakers to be shortlisted for the prestigious Rene Carcan International prize for printmaking. The exhibition of the shortlisted works will be in February, 2020 at the Bibliotheca Wittockiana, Brussels.
In the first few weeks of August, 2019 I was in residency at the Tweed Regional Gallery, Murwillumbah, NSW. During my time there I took the opportunity to revisit older ideas from my visual diaries which had never been properly explored & work them up into more fully realised drawings. These drawings will now form the basis for my next series of linocuts & limited edition art books.
My artist book, ‘After A Time’ has been included in ‘Between The Sheets: Artists’ Books 2019′. The exhibition runs from August 30 until September 21 at Gallery Central, Perth, Western Australia. I created this unique state book using linocut, collage, hand painting and marker pen. It was bound using single sheet coptic binding.
In the first 3 weeks of May I was in residency at the Art Vault Studio & Gallery in Mildura. The ‘Small Tunes’ project I was working on will be exhibited at Tacit Galleries in September & at the Art Vault over Easter next year.
My woven linocut ‘Apocalypse Tattoo’ was shortlisted for the 2018 Swan Hill Print & Drawing Awards. It will be exhibited along with the other finalists from May 12 to July 15.
From April 4 to April 17 I will be exhibiting my woven linocuts at the Firestation Print Studio. Firestation is situated at 2 Willis Street, Armadale, Victoria & the opening hours are Wednesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
