Iron on mess


Artist

Australia

27 Sep 1952 -


About

This print is from a body (55) of prints done after leaving art school (and Adelaide) in 1976 and receiving a travel grant to visit print workshops overseas in 1980.

During this time I printed at: Workshop Art Centre, Willoughby; Rose Vickers' press in North Sydney; George Lo Grasso's large press in Brookvale; and eventually my own small press.

My love of lithographs and woodblock printed formed the basis of my early career, and this work is filled with domestic objects in interior spaces.
