SJAC is proud to present this exhibit sponsored by and originally shown by our friends and colleagues at Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre. From Sunbury Shores:

‘Using printmaking as one of the many elements of their creations, these established artists all explore the nature of printmaking in its most elemental form—the transfer of marks onto a surface.

Whether is it printed ink on paper that then speaks to a 3-dimensional piece, or inked fabrics printed onto other fabrics, incorporated into multiple layers, or deconstructed to demonstrate the tonal range and how we use colour to indicate depths and textures—this print work literally flows off the wall. Fun, thoughtful, revealing, complex, – these words hardly begin to describe the processes and concepts behind the work.

Each artist represented here has a unique view of the world and their place within it. As travellers through—they leave their marks, telling the stories they have experienced and are still writing.

These pieces invite you to get closer, to really look at and through the layers, explore the textured details, and consider the juxtapositions and connections. These works are so much more than simply ink on paper.’
