IMPRESSIONS 2018, the Australian Print Workshop's biennial fundraising exhibition, is nigh. As always, it features works by a virtual Who's Who of Australian printmakers. IMPRESSIONS is a highlight of the printmaking calendar, a perfect note on which to end the old year - and a fine way to start the new one.

As previously noted (see Blog Post Tuesday, July 24) my contribution will be printed and editioned by APW master printer, Simon White. 

A series of progress views follow:

Directly below are recent trial proofs. I've yet to sign off on the BAT, but the second proof, in which additional background texture has been cut away, is pretty close to the version we'll go for. The incorporation of chine colle, which brings warmth and depth to the work, was Simon's idea. (Photo credit: Simon White).

IMPRESSIONS 2018 opens on 17 November 2018 and runs until 16 February 2019. For further information, see the poster above, or contact the Australian Print Workshop HERE.
