Shortlisted for the 2023 Burnie Print Prize.

My hand coloured linocut ‘The Last Great Industrial Heartland’ has been shortlisted for the 2023 Burnie Print Prize. The exhibition of the selected prints will run from July 21 until September 8 at the Burnie Museum & Gallery, Burnie, Tasmania.

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.
