Opening event: Friday, March 31, 5-7pm
Printmaking is an ancient artform steeped in centuries of tradition.
Shana James, Dallas Perry, P. James Bryans and Francesco Geronazzo are all highly skilled artists and makers, with passion and expertise in their chosen mediums, their interpretations are diverse. This is a dynamic exhibition with broad appeal – there is bound to be something for everyone here. The exhibition spans many print mediums including: etchings, screen-prints, drypoints and monoprints.
Francesco Geronazzo makes artwork responding to the immersive nature of walking through the Margret River landscape. Shana James investigates the Walt Whitman poem – Song of Myself which is a reflection on the nature of the imaginative internal world and the external environment. P. James Bryans visualises nostalgic images to do with childhood memory. Dallas Perry creates monoprints which are like film stills examining landscapes and states of being. The exhibition is a survey of contemporary printmaking that provides four distinct views of the media, a simultaneous exploration of process and ideas.
Venue: Foyer, Margaret River HEART
