printmaking at QCA & GCCAR
Largesse speaks to two qualities that are evident in the prints being made in the Queensland College of Art print studios and at the Griffith Centre for Creative Art Research. Firstly there has been a recent surge of large prints being produced by post graduates at QCA. These range from PhD candidate Blaire Coffey’s expansive silkscreened canvasses through to large assemblages of small prints such as the work of PhD candidate David Nixon, honours graduate Fred Gooch, DVA graduate Glen Skien and graduate Torinne Zach. Secondly whether through intaglio, relief, silkscreening, lithography or digital, (all represented in this show) printmaking is intrinsically a generous, democratic medium. By it art is tangibly shared with or mutually owned by the public, and it’s in this spirit that these artists freely share the rewards of their labour.
Largesse is showing at POP Gallery, 27 Logan Road, Woolloongabba, Brisbane, untill the 28th of February,please see theGallery website for opening hours. griffith.edu.au/qcagalleries.
