Four Eyes

During the past week in Spring-deprived Ballarat, I editioned and hand-coloured the linocut Four Eyes, destined for Impressions 2012, the fundraising exhibition at the Australian Print Workshop in Melbourne, which opens on November 30.

The image, a continuation of a long-term fascination with the concept of the Other, also draws from my repertoire of masks and moths. The latter, Milionia aetheria, hails from Queensland, in northeastern Australia.
