Peter Ward_Yin Yang Bella Vista_2012_60x30cm_linocutI have been selected as a finalist in the Rene Carcan International Prize for Printmaking. The exhibition for all those of us shortlisted will be in Bruxelles at the beginning of 2016. This caps off what has been an exceptional year for me.

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.
