pressing matters - contemporary printmaking

28 september - 22 October 2011

This exhibition of Melbourne-based artists is an investigation into the current state of printmaking. By highlighting the diversity and scope of the discipline its commonalities come to the fore: issues of tradition versus innovation, registration and interface, appropriation and the multiple. These ideas echo throughout the work, and yet they are a similarity which each artist approaches and answers in a different way.

The following established and up-and-coming artists are featured in this show:

Jazmina Cininas

Laura di Florio

Gary (Spook) James

Adrian Kellett

Damon Kowarsky

Sarah Melanaus

 


Jim Pavlidis

Cat Poljski

Julia Silvester

Deb Taylor

Kim Wall
