I have been exploring the notion of the anonymous portrait, working from photos taken in the street of strangers. I combine these images with narratives. Own Sweet Time contemplates what you can be seen to take with you, even if you take nothing.

Cleo Wilkinson – Inception IV

$330.00 inc GST
Mezzotint
Edition of 30
Image size: 7.5 x 10 cm
Paper size: 28 x 19 cm
Print Commission 2014

The mezzotint print achieves tonality by roughening the plate with a ‘rocker’. Using this technique a high level of tonal richness can be achieved. I try to emphasise the singularity and silence of a form. What is missing in the shadows, and suggested, provides the greatest potential for me.

Jacqueline Aust – Out of the Blue

$330.00 inc GST
Photogravure and relief print
Edition of 30
Image size: 28.5 x 40cm
Paper size: 41 x 51 cm
PCA Print Commission 2014

Bird skeletons are often bleached by the elements, becoming fragile objects outlasting their useful function. Bones speak to us. We respond to them viscerally, as subjects or objects, meanings or matter. This gannet skull has an uneasy ambivalence as a symbol fluttering between life and death, serving to warn against behaviours that reduce our bird species to such remains.

Janet Parker-Smith – Stranger

$330.00 inc GST
Screenprint with glitter
Edition of 50
Image size: 35 x 27 cm
Paper size: 37.5 x 38 cm
PCA Print Commission 2014

This work is representative of human and nature and their boundless capacity for re-invention and rejuvenation. ‘The Curios’ are evidence of a mutation that may provide advantageous new traits in a foreign environment that could survive and multiply, or being adverse effects.

Layli Rakhsha – From series of home

$330.00 inc GST
Screenprint and gouache
Edition of 33
Image size: 41 x 28.2 cm
Paper size: 41 x 28.2 cm
PCA Print Commission 2014

From series of home represents both my visual and conceptual investigations on the idea of home. I ask myself questions such as how can I visualise home in Australia? What are the impacts of my everyday experiences on the image of home? Handwriting the single word Khaneh (home) on top of each printed work provides me the opportunity to search for the answers to my questions and visualise a place, as home, that may only exist in my mind.

This story is about Kurlama or ‘yam’ that we prepare for ceremony after the wet season. It is a big ceremony for Tiwi people where the four skin groups (Fish, Pandanus, Rock and Sun) get together to receive Tiwi names and pay respect to our ancestors.

Michael Kempson – Longing and Belonging

$550.00 inc GST
Etching and aquatint
Edition of 30
Image size: 43.5 x 63.5 cm
Paper size: 56 x 76 cm
PCA Print Commission 2014

Since my residency at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo I have deployed Chinese-manufactured toy animals from its gift shop to comment on vexing contradictions. Longing and Belonging ponders Australia’s challenges in coming to terms with its global position in Asia and alludes to emerging, not so cute geopolitical complexities in the Asia/Pacific region, the influence of dominant economies, past domino theories and our blinkered dependence on the fluctuating value of finite natural resources.

Paper size: 56 x 76 cm
PCA Print Commission 2014

The Wrong Brooklyn #1 is part of a greater series investigating place and identity through a nostalgic lens of the graffiti vernacular born in the other Brooklyn (NYC). Separations are drawn with Sharpies, the preferred writing tool of subway graffiti writers.

Brooklyn is a suburb of Melbourne, Australia where the artist lived and worked when this print was created.

Nina Juniper – Shibuya Reconstructed

Screenprint, solvent transfer and chine colle
Edition of 35
Image size: 29.5 x 19cm; Paper size: 57 x 38 cm
PCA Print Commission 2014

Nina Juniper is an emerging printmaker whose practice explores ideas of architectural space, the public realm and spatial history. Her works apply distortion and layering as techniques of intervention and descriptions of human interaction in public space. She is interested in the function and dysfunction of the public realm, the role of architectural space, and the historical context of the built environment.

Samuel Tupou – Falé Machina

$330.00 inc GST
Screenprint
Edition of 30
Image size: 33 x 26 cm
Paper size: 38 x 56 cm
PCA Print Commission 2014

My artwork is about present day realities and future aspirations. Exploring themes of migration, culture clash, decoration and value, with particular focus on elements that unite the Pacific. These include recurring design motifs, traditional patterning and the convergence of cultures. I employ patterns derived from traditional Pacific Island ‘Tapa’ or bark cloth, set against stylised images and wildly artificial colours of western pop culture.
