‘Purple Lost’ selected for Print Council of Australia’s 2015 print commission.

Print commission







A version of my ‘Lost’ image has been chosen for this years Print Council of Australia’s print commission. There’s a little bit of money involved but it’s the exposure for my work that I’m most excited about. My linocut will be exhibited in all the capital cities around Australia as well as feature in various publications including ‘Imprint’.

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.
