ARTIST: Cecilia Jacobs
TITLE: Drift
TYPE: Woodblock and drypoint

ARTIST STATEMENT: My multi-layered print 'Drift' is an abstract interpretation of nature, which creates echoes of wood, water and clouds. The colours I used are reminiscent of Melbourne's winter months and reflect my thoughts of the sea and my longing for nature as a whole during this time.

TYPE: Drypoint on handmade papers with fluorescent pigment
STATEMENT: Darwin-based artist Winsome Jobling works primarily with handmade papers and experimental printmaking. The images incorporated during wet sheet-forming are meant to complement and complicate the ground for the print.

ARTIST: Chris Lawry
TITLE: The Model
TYPE: linocut

STATEMENT: This work is partly an attempt to translate one of my quick life-drawings into linocut, and a style response to the kind of modernism popular in the Ethel Spowers and Evaline Syme era, though executed in my own way.

ARTIST: Gisela Züchner-Mogall
TITLE: Encounter
TYPE: Digital print

STATEMENT: Spiky forms explore textured shapes, a limited ‘icy’ colour scheme; balance seems to
freeze movement. In Photoshop, investigating layering, distortions and extrusions - just to
name a few - afford unlimited possibilities. I find these creative processes and the use of a
variety of media most rewarding and inspiring.

ARTIST: Seraphina Martin
TITLE: Gateway for Hope
TYPE: Solar plate and watercolour. Bleed print.

STATEMENT: I have focused on the symbol of a natural Gateway formed by the land. The light from the sun shines through this gateway and is seen as a source of energy for the germination of new growth forming on an isolated island. This is a likely connection to the fruitful beginning of life but also a natural microorganism offering hope and transformation to embody the many issues troubling our contemporary world. It is a metaphor for the promise of rejuvenation and evolution of humanity and our earthly existence.

ARTIST: Karen Kaese
TITLE: Above & Below
TYPE: Linocut

STATEMENT: For me the interest is in the coherence of new forms or hybrids examining consciousness, myths & the spaces between. I am interested in investigating the peripheries between dream, fantasy and memory and how this interacts with our conscious experience and the inherent conflict between illusion and reality, ethereality and permanence.

ARTIST: Julieanne Rasmussen
TITLE: Pathways
TYPE: Screenprint

STATEMENT: Living on acreage gives me the opportunity to
explore nature and be reminded of the delicate relationships that exist in that environment. The dancing twigs represent the trees I see on my daily walks and the endless possibilities for new
connections in our neural pathways.

ARTIST: Mei Sheong Wong
TITLE: Cockerel
TYPE:

STATEMENT: Mei’s predominantly figurative work explores the absurdity and delight of the human condition, through the materiality of print media. It incorporates random mark-making, sketches, photographs, text snippets and
repurposed imagery, relying on an intuitive, unstructured process, towards an uncertain outcome.

ARTIST: Rachel Dun
TITLE: Pulau Besar
TYPE: Etching and Aquatint Handcoloured

STATEMENT: Inspired by the numerous drawings I did while recently sitting on a beach in Malaysia. I would watch these boats depart at sunset to work through the night and return at sunrise. The fishermen were fascinated with my depiction of their colourful boats. On my return to Australia I transformed these drawings into etchings. "Pulau Besar" is one part of my Fishing Boat Series.

I was looking to experiment with gel plates in my printmaking and came across this gem of a channel on YouTube. The artist is not only wonderfully experimental and fun with his mark-making and processes, he is also very generous with his knowledge. I've been loving watching his videos and trying out and building on the techniques he demonstrates, so I thought I'd share.
