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.

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.

Glyphs is my language of the Australian bush. It is simple, stark and amazingly beautiful, at once familiar and obvious, but at the same time elusive, mysterious and undecipherable. This language of the landscape is a metaphor for life itself. We try to understand it, but ultimately it remains unknowable.

Jillian Allan – Sadb thought quietly to herself, ‘I knew I should’ve brought my gloves’

$250.00 inc GST
Linocut, hand-coloured with pigment ink
Edition of 40
Image size: 39.5 x 32.9 cm
Paper size: 76 x 56 cm

The story of Sadb originates from Irish mythology. This tale speaks of a gentle woman who must, because of an evil enchantment, live much of her life as a deer. My current work explores the transformative nature of beings like Sadb who exist as half-women, half-beast on a full time or part time basis. It also questions whether there is a hidden agenda or purpose to their guide, and if the notion of a half-life exists outside the realm of myth in a contemporary context.

Jonas Ropponen – Two Toads Together and Toadstools

Bufotenin, a toxin excreted by the cane toad, induces mild hallucinations and is listed by Australian drug laws as a class one drug along with heroin and cocaine. Illness and death however, are likely to be the effects of ingesting the excretions from the toad’s glands, due to the high concentration of other toxins in these, Poisonous fungi are often called toadstools although the difference between mushrooms and toadstools has never been precisely defined.
