Gwen Scott – Pomona dreaming of her nemesis

$380.00 inc GST
Reduction linocut
Image size: 30 x 30 cm
Paper size: 42 x 38 cm
PCA Print Commission 2016

This print references the theme of Pomona, a Roman mythological goddess of fruit trees, orchards and gardens. Pomona watches over and protects fruit trees and cares for their cultivation. Including my own mythology into this theme, Pomona is portrayed in a restful position dreaming of the threat to her orchard by her nemesis the butterfly/codling moth while her dog watches on.
My own dog is used here to reinforce the idea of the dog as human protector and to set-up a triangular relationship. Wanting more psychological effect, I replaced the pruning knife (Pomona’s attribute in documented mythology) with a scythe and used intense colour to achieve this effect.

The old people still talk about the day the missionaries took away my people, the Kunganyji, from the island of Kabirah, today called Fitzroy Island. Our island was torched, to force my people down to the main beach where they boarded luggers and the mission sloop, which ferried them to the mainland. Turtle Beach was where they were supposed to settle, but this was not their land and soon Yarrabah community was built and most settled there. But it was never peaceful with so many different tribes.

They carried whatever possessions they owned in their handmade baskets. They were like refugees. The government used our island as a quarantine station and later for military training and a naval defense base in world war two. Now the tourists go there to an expensive hotel and swim with the fish and look at the beautiful corals. We still know where the burial sites are and remember the stories of that island.

Katy Mutton – The Stack

$330.00 inc GST
Screenprint
Image size: 30.5 x 30.5 cm
Paper size: 49 x 38 cm
PCA Print Commission 2016

The Stack was inspired by a painting I created in 2015. The work features military drones as semi-tessellated geometric forms, against a vertical striped background. My interest in military aviation lies in the tension between the idolatrous romanticism of flying machines and their capability as machines of war and surveillance.

Pia Larsen – Welcome – US

Archival pigment print on cotton rag
Image size: 43.24 x 30 cm
Paper size: 53.24 x 38 cm
Printed by Nick Greenwich
PCA Print Commission 2016

Welcome – US presents impressions of time and place, recorded during a residency in Rosendale, upstate New York. The images were printed on hand-made paper and folded into (US-sized) ‘milk cartons’. The title invokes a simple promise to, ‘Welcome us’ to the ‘US’, whoever we may be. If only it were so.

Rochelle Summerfield – Her Feathers Unfurl

$330.00 inc GST
Five-colour screenprint with collage
Image size: 54 x 38 cm
Paper size: 76 x 57.5 cm
Printed with Malcolm King at Kingstudio.
PCA Print Commission 2016

Through collage and hand-drawn imagery, Her Feathers Unfurl is an exploration of transformation. The sassy heroine is wistful, perhaps constrained by the responsibilities of urban life. She looks through the inviting sunlit window and finds the room is malleable, nature is inside and her potential is realised.

Rona Green – Cheeky Clive

$440.00 inc GST
Hand-coloured linocut
Image size: 44 x 33 cm
Paper size: 44 x 33 cm
PCA Print Commission 2016

The pictures I make explore ideas about our sense of individuality. Specifically, how identity is expressed via the body; physical appearance and the ways it can be altered; the skin and its potential to be the stem point for transformation. Through the fabrication of strange and unusual hybrid creatures I champion idiosyncrasy.

Rujunko Pugh – Ningyō

$350.00 inc GST
Screenprint and acrylic
Image size: 56 x 45.5 cm
Paper size: 61 x 49 cm
PCA Print Commission 2016

My work draws on 19th century Japanese textiles and portraiture to explore themes such as self, history, culture, and environmental issues. In this work, as a reference to the catastrophic Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant meltdown in 2011, the relationship between Japanese society and nuclear power is contemplated. Ningyō means traditional doll in Japanese.

Paper size: 36 x 38 cm
Image size: 36 x 38 cm
PCA Print Commission 2016

My work explores the invisible forces and energies in nature through space. Trace IV presents a glimpse of reverberation in our surroundings through visual sensation of movement to raise consciousness of the ever-changing world, and to pause and reflect on the nature of existence.

Sophie Westerman – I am beside myself

$330.00 inc GST
Multi-plate aquatint
Image size: 50 x 70 cm
Paper size: 50 x 70 cm
PCA Print Commission 2016

To be beside oneself has two potential meanings: to be filled with emotion such joy or grief; or to step outside one’s present and act as an observer. I am beside myself uses imagery of the house and the facade as a language to explore these different yet connected concepts.
