Workshop at CPM Studios 2011
With Geraldine Berkemeier and Gary Shinfield

In April 2011 Geraldine Berkemeier and I conducted a two-day workshop for Community Printmakers Murwillumbah in Northern NSW as part of the activities of the CPM National Print Prize held at the Tweed Regional Art Gallery.

Geraldine worked with the technique of waterless lithography on aluminium plates, and I worked with woodcuts using Finnish birch wood. We also introduced the technique of staining various Asian papers with watercolour washes. Participants produced images combining different approaches. The theme for the workshop was the river, and inspiration and different ideas developed with reference to the Tweed River.

Enclosures, series 3a

Enclosures, series 3a

I worked on five key images with several variations of each.

The theme was the idea of an enclosure, developed from drawings made in Greece.

I used the technique of monotype with woodcut for some, and also produced five woodcuts to edition. All images are 90 x 60 cm and printed on full sheets of Chinese handmade paper 145 x 75cm. For exhibition they can be displayed without frames, as was done on the final days of the residency.

Each image is printed on handmade Chinese paper, 145 x 75 cm. Pigments mixed with transparent medium were used to create colours for printing. The ‘enclosures’ were carved from blocks of Japanese plywood. These images are unique state prints.
