Celebrating 20 years of art and culture

I am delighted to have been invited to take part in the current Hazelhurst Gallery & Arts Centre exhibition.

To celebrate 20 years of Hazelhurst more than 350 artists from southern Sydney were invited to take part in a massive exhibition in the Regional Gallery. It brings together the region’s artists and is the first time the gallery has hosted an exhibition of this magnitude. Importantly, the exhibition is an opportunity to say thank you for the support artists have given Hazelhurst over the past years.

With no particular theme for the exhibition, artists were instead asked to submit works that represented them and their practice. The works range in date from recent to earlier in the artist’s practice.

I submitted an etching I produced earlier this year when working with Basil Hall in his studio. It was a wonderful experience learning from his many years of printmaking expertise and has been invaluable in cementing my understanding of the process.

Although I’ve produced etchings in the past Basil has a natural ability to both pass on knowledge and drag the best out of those less experienced than himself.

Banksia serrata evolved from a fallen and dried Banksia pod I collected and then drew. My aim was to translate this into a print evocative of an illustrated botanical book page.
