Strange to behold

Tomorrow is the last day of my exhibition of prints ‘Strange to behold’ ¬†which has been showing at Printmaker Gallery in Fitzroy, Melbourne (from the 18th August to the 8th September. The works are a collection of small scale etchings, collagraphs and solarplate intaglios :

A series of images that evoke the space between the ordinary and the uncanny. There are unlikely encounters between animals, plants which curl and furl and scenarios encapsulated in jars. Some of these are playful imaginings whilst others touch on environmental concerns and anxieties we hold about changes in the natural world. Presented in part as a group of specimens to be looked at anew for clues they may hold.
