After several successful markets this summer, Saturday 30th January might be my last in a little while. Back to work means less time in the studio, although I will have a three day weekend!
I will be working towards the Printmakers exhibition at the F Project, Warrnambool, with the theme ‘Trees’. My work will still be available at Julia St Creative Space and Gallery in Portland, the Mud Gallery in Hamilton, Koopman’s in Dunkeld and the WADAS exhibit at Flagstaff Hill, Warrnambool.
These are the newest in a series of prints featuring our fabulous native cockatoos. Same linocut block in different colour ways, some with hand painted details. Which do you like best?
This linocut was a long time in the planning, sketching and carving stages, but I’m quite pleased with the result. Hand printed on 45% organic cotton and 55% hemp, made in Australia tea towels and 50 x 50cm cushion covers. I thought I might try different ink colours on paper for Major Mitchell’s, Yellow and Red-tailed Black cockatoos and Galahs.
I have enjoyed producing some monoprints with leaves from native plants and a circular piece of lino over the past few months. Those that weren’t quite as successful benefited from overprinting with a linocut of Eastern Barred Bandicoots. There are ten of these in the edition, with varied backgrounds. $95 unframed or $180 framed.
