The Lurking Series consist of two intaglio prints made during my Honours year at RMIT University in Melbourne. They have been shown in a number of exhibitions in 2011 including the Rick Amor Print Prize at Montsalvat, the Honours Endowment Travelling Scholarship Exhibition at RMIT School of Art Gallery and at Stop Press at Carbon Black Gallery. More recently they were shown at the Annual Printmaking Award exhibition at Oak Hill Gallery in Mornington.
The lure of the South was made during my Honours degree at RMIT University as part of an international exchange portfolio with the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. We did a large edition of 38 and the edition was swapped between all participants in the exchange portfolio. I have a beautiful set of prints from this folio. There were two requirements for this portfolio print, the first was that it had to be a final size of A4 (mine starts being A4 and opens up to reveal the creatures within). The second was that it related to the theme of North/ South. This print is an intaglio print on rag paper and its size is 59 x 21cm.

Nocturnal Ballet is a lithograph that I made with some help from Peter Lancaster who is a wonderful master lithographer from Lancaster Press. He recommended the technique used in the background which worked wonderfully. This work was one of a number of works that were recently in a show at Carbon Black Gallery in Prahran called Stop Press which coincided with IMPACT 7, a printmaking conference held here in Melbourne. This particular work is the 3rd state print from the Nocturnal Ballet series.
Emerging and Submerging are both intaglio prints printed on black rag paper. They are both sizeable works, with the rag paper measuring 76 x 112 cm. They were printed back in 2009, to an edition number of 10.
Unfathomable Beauty is a multiple plate intaglio print that I made in my 3rd and final year of my Bachelor degree at RMIT University back in 2009. It was made with three copper plates and was printed on white rag paper. It’s quite a large print, with the paper size being 56 x 76 cm. It is an edition of 5.
