Tuesday I took myself and my lino off to the Newcastle Printmakers studio and spent a productive few hours inking up and pressing my images. I’ve included the link to the Newcastle Printmakers. It’s a valuable yet underutilised resource. Astounding! Except for Gina the assigned master printmaker for the day I was the only person there. And to be honest it was luxurious having a press to myself but also bewildering. Where is everyone?

The link below is worthy of a watch for those fascinated with the linocut process. Now this is dedication to the art form.

2 weeks ago I was reading up about the history of Tasmania so this video by Hannah Gadsby is pertinent. She’s an art historian and this doco is relevant for all those interested in what’s happening in the Australian contemporary art world. It also highlights how essential it is to have a background or knowledge of where the artist is coming from to truly understand the content.

I’ve also been keeping up with the drawing assignment I assigned myself late last year. And of course there is the painting. I don’t know what to think about continuing with oils. I love the finish but the smell is woeful. And I actually enjoy painting with acrylic more I think…
