Coincidence

9 May - 2 June, 2007

Work by Neil Malone

Coincidence is an exploration of the immediate environment.

Neil Malone keeps the viewer guessing as he draws a tenuous line between what is natural and what is artificial. Challenging the traditional method of print making, Malone has developed his own technique. Concept and process collide to form a new approach to printing where perspex replaces the old copper plate. A scanner and computer then observe, interpret and print Malone's complex yet sometimes random sets of marks with a minimum of interference.

The process is organic and the work is guided primarily by the interplay of inquiry and the physicality of touch. The work reflects a sense of time and place. The result is a series of large scale monochromatic prints. The scale of each work is such that the viewer can explore in detail each tactile surface.

Neil Malone is the Head of Printmaking at the Victorian College of the Arts. As an established artist he has exhibited extensively in the Asia Pacific region. This is his first solo exhibition since his 2006 show in Seoul, Korea.
