David Fairbairn – Auto Portrait No. 20

$440.00 inc GST
Etching and drypoint
Image size: 33 x 28
Paper size: 76 x 56 cm
PCA Print Commission 2017

I have been making copper etchings and drypoints since 1999, as part of a much wider drawing and painting practice. Portraiture has occupied a central role since 1984. Although this etching Auto Portrait No. 20 is a self-portrait the decision to work directly with a sitter is fundamental to my practice. The length of time spent with the subject, the day to day stopping and starting of a work as a series develops over time, and even the subtle daily differences that exist in both subject and artist are factors that contribute to the interpretation of the work. Much of the impetus for my work draws on an abiding dialogue with the great Western figurative traditions of the past including Goya, Munch, Freud and Giacometti.

Deborah Klein – Pressed for Time

$330.00 inc GST
Archival pigment print
Image size: 31.3 x 23.2 cm
Paper size: 48.4 x 33 cm
Printed by Luke Ingram
PCA Print Commission 2017

Pressed for Time is part of an ongoing exploration of the absence of women from history, in this case, of Chinese women during the Australian gold rushes. A detailed study of the period was undertaken, however the women could equally originate from any place or time, including the present.

Diane Masters – Ocean Drifters

$330.00 inc GST
Carborundum and solar plate etching
Image size: 38 x 57.5 cm
Paper size: 38 x 57.5 cm
PCA Print Commission 2017

My work explores the idea of “drift” across cultural, emotional and elemental landscapes. More recently, in collaboration with plankton 
scientists, I have been developing images of plankton, planktos being the Greek word for drift. Observing plankton through the microscope, for me, is akin to looking into deep space.

Gwenn Tasker – Material Echo

$330.00 inc GST
Etching
Image size: 30 x 40 cm
Paper size: 56 x 76 cm
PCA Print Commission 2017

I am interested in exploring the role of culture in affecting how humans interact with, and relate to, the non-human world. In previous series I have considered the commodification of nature in Western culture. In this work I am interested in exploring the way culture affects how landscape is perceived and understood. Some features of the landscape, such as power lines, are so ubiquitous that they virtually disappear.
The origin of the materials used in construction become remote. In this image, the structure of a railway bridge reflects and echoes the form of the trees from which it is built, and is carried through again into the power lines. Humans, for the moment at least, remain inextricably intertwined with nature.

Jacqueline Aust – Lie of the land – Mildura

$330.00 inc GST
Drypoint, photogravure and chine collé
Image size: 67 x 45 cm
Paper size: 76 x 56 cm
PCA Print Commission 2017

My work explores the relationship between autographic mark making, a response to place, and the mechanics of making multiple images.  Lie of the land – Mildura  is part of a series of work that refers to the process of navigating environments that are foreign to me and represents a map of my recollection of physical experience and visual perspective.

PCA Print Commission 2017

This print pays homage to the bird pollinators, which along with insects are essential to the life-cycle of the many plant species that green our planet.
Banksia and gum blossom are favourites of the Australian bush bird pollinators, which include the honey-eater and the parrot families.

Joel Wolter – Celestial Lane

$330.00 inc GST
Etching
Image size: 22.4 x 30cm
Paper size: 44 x 48cm
PCA Print Commission 2017

I predominately work in etching and explore the environment and our varied relationships with it. Recent works explore urban settings where the gritty marks and recordings found in these spaces are analogous to the marks and gestures made on the etching plate.

Roslyn Kean – Night Fall I

$330.00 inc GST
Multiple block woodblock print (12 blocks. hand printed with a baren)
Image size: 29.5cm x 46cm
Paper size: 50cm x 65cm
PCA Print Commission 2017

My woodblock prints have architectural, cultural and literary references intending to be evocative and contemplative, at the same time attempt to capture a serenity and simplicity through the use of minimal colour, light and form. The poetics of shade and shadows, secret places and the stillness of nightfall are all referenced in this work.

TJ Bateson – Iteration Silver Fields

$330.00 inc GST
Multiple block woodcut
Image size: 57 x 43.5 cm
Paper size: 57 x 43.5 cm
PCA Print Commission 2017

The exploration of colour and low tonality with quiet, muted, rhythmic tonal shifts of a contemplative nature and the broken moment of pattern call for reflection, allowing the many layers to unfold and reveal themselves. My iteration of mark embraces and celebrates machine-made aesthetics alongside evidence of the hand of the artist within an immersive, visual experience, looking to the essay in discretion, inwardness and silence in its minimalist, ethereal quiet.
