‘Divining The Entrails’ into 2 prestigious collections.

My limited edition  book, ‘Divining The Entrails’, has been acquired by both the State Library of Victoria and the National Library of Australia for their artists’ book collections. The concertina book is in an edition of 7 and comprises 20 linocuts exploring the theme of magical thinking in times of existential crisis.

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.
