Alexis Beckett – Fleeting

$250.00 inc GST
Etched blind embossing, archival digital print
Edition of 40
Image size: variable
Paper size: 56 x 38 cm
PCA Print Commission 2004

This work was inspired by the increasing absence of wild native birds from our cities. Small embossed portraits of a selection of lost bird species are combined with a bird’s eye view of the city, looking from the city centre to the outskirts and vice versa. Silent songs are reversed out of this panorama.

Edition of 33
Image size: 56 x 31 cm
Paper size: 80 x 60 cm
Printed by the artist
PCA Print Commission 2009

The microcosm – a world hidden from view – is a place of beauty, danger, deception and intrigue. To appreciate a broader world than our own, to confront our fears, maybe event to see beauty in unpleasant things, we must be liberated. In life, it’s the little things that count.

Andrew Antoniou – The Back Pages

$250.00 inc GST
Etching
Edition of 40
Image size: 50 x 35 cm
Paper size: 76 x 56 cm
PCA Print Commission 2004

The Back Pages was an idea that followed on from a series of etchings inspired by ‘Theatre of the Absurd’, pantomime and other forms of fantasy drama. This cast of characters is captured in a moment of absurdity, of contemplation and unspoken intent, which viewers must determine for themselves.

Anne McMaster – Kangaroo Bones, Broken Crockery, Drought

$350.00 inc GST
Multiplate etching mounted on BFK Rives paper
Edition of 40
Image size: 24 x 24 cm
Paper size: 38 x 33 cm
PCA Print Commission 2008

In the thick of drought kangaroos perish and farmers walk off the land. All that is left are bones and broken crockery. Overlaid images prompt the observer to question the Anglo-Saxon relationship to country, to that of indigenous tribes. Foul biting and earthy colours bring attention to the weathered landscape of Australia.

Annette Vincent – Reflection

$250.00 inc GST
Etching, chine colle, watercolour
Edition of 46
Image size: 22.4 x 30.4 cm (combined)
Paper size: 28 x 38 cm
PCA Print Commission 2005

Reflection was inspired by a new body of work. It echoes my passion for the old gnarled River Red gums that are slowly dying. This etching is derived from a pen and ink drawing. The plate was prepared with a wine-coloured ink and four layers of rice paper, and the tree highlighted with gouache.

Basema Mahdi – Forest Debris-Cotter River

$200.00 inc GST
Woodcut
Edition of 40
Image size: 56 x 76 cm
Paper size: 56 x 76 cm
PCA Print Commission 2004

The image Forest Debris-Cotter River and much of my recent work employs a fine woodcutting technique, which has grown out of research into the traditions and techniques of nineteenth century woodcutting, engraving and etching. I use horizontal and linear cutting to create a rhythmic density which is further enhanced by the grain of the woodblock itself. The technique allows the images to emulate a sense of cutting into and through a slice of the landscape.

Cat Poljski – After Euclid’s Rule (Diptych)

$500.00 inc GST
Etching, aquatint, photo-etching
Edition of 40
Image size: 30 x 25 cm x 2
Paper size: 30 x 25 cm x 2
PCA Print Commission 2003

Euclid’s elements show how to construct infinitely varied geometric compositions from points straight lines and arcs of circles. This diptych is based on spaces constructed using Euclid’s Rule with emphasis on architectural forms and the polemics of space. Four copper plates have been used in an attempt to suggest that the layers beneath each determine a specific experience of a space: a kind of chaos and order emerges in its completion.

Cat Poljski – Archetype for tracing space IV

$250.00 inc GST
Etching aquatint, engraving, photogravure, embossing
Edition of 40
Image size: 15 x 56 cm
Paper size: 39.5 x 76.5 cm
PCA Print Commission 2007

The five plates that make up 50% of the print were made in New York. They became an archetype for tracing space whilst roaming downtown through the streets of Manhattan. On location, the small copper plates were engraved to represent the facades of different buildings that I walked by almost every day for 8 months. The work involves forms, shapes and structures that exist in particular urban spaces representing architecture, whose disguises are numerous.

Edition of 40
Image size: 38 x 57 cm
Paper size: 38 x 57 cm
PCA Print Commission 2008

Earlier we had been in the basalt country north of the road. The distance and the aura that surrounded them seemed to carry us along. As we walked, our conversation developed. There wasn’t any hurry though both of us seemed to know this was a time for truth and peace.

My current practice explores and questions ideas about social, cultural and historical inherited gender stereotypes. The images used are sourced from toys, games, models and references to childhood from my own collection.
One such toy is a model plane of the Enola Gay. This screenprint, sourced from the box, shows an image of young boy happily clutching his toy plane. The surface of the print is embossed with images of the nuclear weapon that was dropped on Hiroshima.

David Nixon – Nebula

$250.00 inc GST
Linocut
Edition of 40
Image size: 59 x 40 cm
Paper size: 76 x 56 cm
PCA Print Commission 2007

A meditative, devotional process that employs repetition and invokes a calming presence is combined with the technically innovative use of a builder’s hand drill, imbuing an immediacy and physicality into the presence of my linocuts. The rhythmic, clustered emanations of Nebula suggest that matter derives from sound vibration, celebrating the music of the spheres.

Multiple-plate etching
Edition of 30
Image size: 39 x 29.5 cm
Paper size: 65 x 50 cm
Printed by the artist
PCA Print Commission 2009

Conduit is a meditation on receptivity. This image is a metaphor for the external influences that shape an internal dialogue. The rhythmic swirls, drips and dense fog that encase the ear branch allude to the challenging task of processing in a maelstrom of information.

Filomena Coppola – From the series Pulse

$250.00 inc GST
Etching
Edition of 40
Image size: 29.5 x 60.5 cm
Paper size: 57 x 76 cm
PCA Print Commission 2003

The symbolic representation of opposites and their interaction is a recurrent theme of my artistic practice. The work explores the interdependence of nature/culture, dark/light, microcosm/macrocosm, seduction and repulsion. Pulse is a series of work that explores the relationships between forms and their points of intersection or collision, Pattern and repetition create the visual tension, Tiny hair-like filaments search for the possibility of contact. These hairy peripheries emanate from a dense mass of replicating pattern, which is eventually defined by form.

G W Bot – Garden

$900.00 inc GST
Two block colour linocut
Edition of 40
Image size: 76 x 56 cm
Paper size: 76 x 56 cm
PCA Print Commission 2004

Although contained within the size of the sheet, the garden in this image moves beyond the sheet of paper, both in the cutting and in the strange beacon of light which plunges into the garden from the outside or leading from the garden to the beyond. At least on one level it can be interpreted as a passage of life or the passage of a life.
