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.  Cartographies X, takes as its motif an image origionally created as a small wood engraving.  Doubled and layered using transparent blacks, the result emphasises the sense of reflections in water, that was the inspiration for the origional abstracted engraving.
