Damias elegans moth woman

The first print to be editioned in our new studio at Ballarat is signed, sealed and soon to be delivered. It's heading for Beastarium, a print exchange portfolio coordinated by Rona Green. In due course, portfolio edition no. 40/40 will become part of the permanent collection of Dubbo Regional Gallery, where it will be exhibited in 2015.

Dubbo Regional Gallery’s prime collecting theme is The Animal in Art. Inspired by the Gallery’s rural location and proximity to Taronga Western Plains Zoo, the Animal in Art seeks to examine issues surrounding the representation of animals in the Visual Arts. The Animal has been used extensively as a symbol, trophy, object and metaphor. The collection tackles some of the wider possibilities of this rationale through works that use the animal as a means of expression whether in a literal or metaphoric way.
