Shortlisted for the PCA Print Commission

PCA Print commission for FacebookI have been shortlisted for the Print Council of Australia’s 2015 Print Commission. There were 18 chosen from 118 applications. 10 works will selected so I guess I’ve got roughly a 50/50 chance now. Here’s hoping.

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.
