The last two weekends in Ballarat have been spent printing and hand colouring the linocut Red bodied Swallowtail Winged Woman (ed. 49) for Freak of Nature, a folio exchange and group exhibition curated by Rona Green. It is the first print to come out of my temporary workspaces (see previous Blog Post.) Both spaces have proved to be a pleasure to work in.
Freak of Nature will be exhibited at Switchback Gallery at Monash University, Gippsland in September 2011 as part of IMPACT 7, the international print symposium hosted by Monash University. In Janurary 2012 it will travel to the US, where it will be exhibited at King Family Exhibition Space at University of Colorado, Boulder.
