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.

Andrea Przygonski – Portrait of a Killer – Suspect 2, Schisto

$180.00 inc GST
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
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.

Annabel Nowlan – The clove hitch

$150.00 inc GST
Screenprint on Smooth Dutch Etch
Edition of 34
Image size: 60 x 43.5 cm
Paper size: 60 x 43.5 cm
Printed by Rebecca Mayo, The Dolls House Studio, Preston VIC
PCA Print Commission 2010

The clove hitch is a non-slip knot often used by farmers. Securely fastened to a rigid beam, it’s symbolic of man’s often futile attempts to restrain and tame nature. The place I’m from, Bimbi, means ‘Place of many birds’ in Wiradjuri language. As a white woman of the land I’m placed between its past and recent histories.

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.

Anne Starling – Inner West

$330.00 inc GST
Relief print
Edition of 40
Image size: 45 x 64.5 cm
Paper size: 57 x 76 cm
PCA Print Commission 2002

In my woodblock print I have focused on the architecture, streetscapes and layout of the city, I am intrigued with the organisation of cities and in the creation of my own maps. In this work I have amalgamated site drawings of buildings, streets and various structures to create a fish eye view of the inner west of Sydney. By creating such a cityscape I form a historical document and record of the specific place.

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
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.

Belinda Fox – Pulse – Mountain dream II

$700.00 inc GST
Relief and embossing
Edition of 40
Image size: 76 x 57 cm
Paper size: 76 x 57 cm
PCA Print Commission 2002

This print is from a series that revolved around three very influential places – a mountain in Laos: Mt Phusi, Mt Kalias in Tibet, and the mountains drawn by Louise Bourgeois of her mother’s home place. As is often found in art and writing, all three mountains are used as metaphors for the real, the ideal, the emotional.

Caroline Williams – Impropaganda: Amodernism and the Arrival of the Enlightenment in Terra Nullius: the Cockatoo

$150.00 inc GST
Edition of 32
Image size: 40 x 50 cm
Paper size: 40 x 50 cm
Printed by the artist
PCA Print Commission 2010

All Thinking is the Same
As a pink Australian referring to the past I choose the Sulphur Crested Cockatoo as representative of the Unimpressed encountering the Enlightenment. As for monotypes – they are an example of why I find prints, drawings, paintings etc. to be similar forms of action – the outcomes of my thinking put to work with all the limitations of a lifelong work in progress.

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.

Paper size: 41 x 26 cm

Habitat loss is a major cause of species extinctions and the decline of ecosystems. This work, entitled Birdwood, refers to the accelerating loss of both fauna and flora, leaving a space that demands urgent action through conservation and restoration,

Clare Humphries – All that remains

$350.00 inc GST
Hand-burnished reduction linocut and multiple-plate relief print on Kozo natural paper
Edition of 30
Image size: 47 x 33.5 cm
Paper size: 47 x 33.5 cm
Printed by the artist
PCA Print Commission 2010

Most of us live with the traces of the dead – the personal belongings left behind when someone dies. These objects carry a history of touch, and, through accruing signs of wear, they can take on an aura. In All that remains I have depicted an inherited, personal possession. The image has been constructed using print processes that echo notions of staining, burial and recovery.
