New(s) – Southern Highlands Printmakers at Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery

photoJune 27 to August 2, 2014.
My contribution to the SHP Coffs show, New(s), was entitled ‘Sketches’ and consisted of 16 mini
works (multi-block, reduction, woven, quilted, and montaged linocuts) displayed in a 4×4 block.

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.
