Tracing the line

Like the prints they create, our artists leave a mark upon the printmaking landscape. In our annual winter blockbuster group exhibition new works by our entire stable of artists are presented together, tracing the line of contemporary Australian printmaking. Shown alongside each other, the diverse techniques, subject matter and artistic visions of our artists are made apparent, telling the story of the vibrant and ever-evolving history of printmaking that they are a part of.

Eisenbergs is my favourite diner in New York. It's such a quirky and wonderful place to eat. It is a classic New York diner, still in its original time capsule, with wonderful shiny metal stools with red cushion tops and an Art Deco interior lit throughout by beautiful stage like bulbs. Signs on the wall read 'Matzo Ball Soup' and 'Pepsi'. As a visitor and an artist who loves this type of theatrical everyday setting, it is a visually exciting subject to depict. The people behind the counter wear white classic diner hats and the walls are covered with photos of the owner, Josh, with stars and celebrities. I guess I love the Eisenbergs because it offers great architectural possibilities whilst capturing an everyday American human aspect that is not often seen in my work. You must visit - order an Eisenburger and a rice pudding!

This image gives the viewer a sense of human scale with its sea of people in a mad rush below the stunning, and architecturally awesome, Flatiron Building. The Flatiron is one of my favourite buildings in New York and I return to it every trip. It appears much like a floating ship with its beautiful stone skyscraper facade and its metal skeleton construction making it as historically significant as it is beautiful. From above in particular, one can see clearly why it is named the Flatiron Building due to its shape being much like an old iron. I sat and scratched initially in situ on the concrete traffic island between 23rd Street and Maddison Square Park. It is this working on site that inspires me. I was driven by the interaction between the terrific hustle and bustle of the city and my constant search to try and capture it. This live interaction helps me to create a sense of energy, vitality and impressionistic quality. I have purposely left plate tone in sections of the image to create light and dark and a sense of weight and power. To me, one of the most striking aspects of this vista is the negative space around the buildings offering a great opportunity for a wonderful composition.
