Abstracting Time brings together
eight emerging Tasmanian printmakers.
The work of the group illustrates the theme of time and memory through experience of the landscape, nature, movement, collection and recollection, identity and experience through exploration of space, composition, place, and narrative.
This exhibition investigates the different ways in which time and memory can be explored. It also refers to the passing of time and the progression of our work since we last worked together as a group of printmaking students.
The work of the group illustrates the theme through geological time and our experience of it in the landscape as well as the interrelationships between land and the body; of times past and creatures that are now extinct as well as their adaptation; of time in motion through movement to create choreographic drawings; and cycles of time in lunar and tide rhythms.
Exploring memory, collection and identity as well as how we experience power through myth.
Collectively, the group uses a wide range of techniques and processes in their practice. Processes used to create the works include repetition and layering; bodily movement; collaboration with nature; drawing, as well as stitching, and in many respects, merging of these processes to arrive at the final works. Printmaking techniques include collograph, linocut, woodcut, embossing, lithography, gravure, drypoint, cyanotype and screen-printing.
