River, etching, 2012, paper: 38 x 56 cm, plate: 19.5 x 39.5 cm, 2012
Hi there, I'm pleased to report that my etching River (above) will be soon be on display in the 2013 Burnie Print Prize Exhibition. The exhibition will be open from Saturday March 16th to Sunday 21st April and should be worth a look if you happen to be in regional Tasmania!
At the moment I'm also enjoying creating some new lithographs for an exhibition in May at Port Jackson Press Print Room, Melbourne. Below are a few snapshots of the work in progress, continuing to draw inspiration from the intricate and infinitely varied structure of canyon walls:
