Rona Green  Lucky LeVon  2022  hand-coloured linocut  edition of 23  56 x 76 cm.

Throughout her career Rona Green has demonstrated an enduring interest in the figure and notably a dedication to the development of extraordinary hybrid characters. Fuelled by a fascination with the animal, Green explores ideas about persona, transformation and the absurd.

Danielle Creenaune  Luminous Fall  2022  woodcut on Somerset Satin White paper  101 x 80 cm.

Luminous Fall forms the expression of a new passage which attempts to capture the nuances and meaning of water. Deriving inspiration from the waterfalls and creeks in the Illawarra landscape and the small flowing creek outside Creenaune’s studio, the artist explores the different qualities of water in this work – movement, light, strength, fluidity, substance and flow – through vertical form and line.

Dianne Fogwell  Tempest  2023  linocut, pigmented ink  142 x 152 cm

“Tempest is a contemplation on global recent floods, their beauty and destruction and ponderings on our ability to take up the challenge of climate change.” –  Dianne Fogwell
