Cartographies VI  2010


Image size 40x66 cm, Paper size 76x110cm

Cartographies is a series of large screenprints created in 2010 and first exhibited as part of Systematic at M16 Artspace in Canberra.  Abstract organic forms sit graphically isolated on the full sheets of white Stonehenge paper.  Playing with scale, repitition and doubling, these forms have become more stark and monumental than the very small prints they are derived from.  They alude to nature and landscape, but keep their secrets close.  The image used in Cartographies VI began as a small wood engraving, itself an absraction of landscape details from Namadgi National Park.
