Ideopsis gaura (Dainty Paperwing) Woman - a new linocut

The 2015 Melbourne International Film Festival is now in full swing. As regular visitors to this blog will be aware, MIFF is an event Shane and I attend every year. Pictured below in its early stages of development is one of two projects I'll be working on between screenings: Ideopsis gaura (Dainty Paperwing) Woman, 2015, pencil and acrylic on linoleum, 22 x 23 cm (approx. image size).

The completed linocut is destined for Parallel Prints NZ/Australia, an exhibition featuring 1 New Zealand artist and 11 Australian artists. The exhibition is scheduled to open at the Art Gallery of Ballarat and Wharepuke Print Studio, New Zealand on 3 October. Full details will be posted nearer the time.
