It was such a privilege to be announced a finalist in the 2019 Parkin Drawing Prize and to be showing my work with friends and colleagues from the Dunedin School of Art. Congratulations to all the finalists and the winners.
I was lucky enough to attend the opening and was very impressed with the install and curation of the wide variety of works on display.
ENCUENTRO / ENCOUNTER Impact 10
Santander, Spain, September 1st to 9th, 2018
It was certainly a wonderful encounter with a beautiful city, a large contingent of passionate print enthusiasts and a host of exciting venues, events, galleries, beaches and Cantabrian sunshine! Thanks to the wonderful organisers at SM Pro Art Circle.
I felt privileged to exhibit my burnt, compacted book, ‘Dreamwork’, at MUPAC, The Museum of Prehistory and Archaeology and I presented a paper on the projects undertaken in the Print Lab. I also submitted a print for the Mini Print Biennial at Centro de Arte Faro Cabo Mayor, the local lighthouse.

Art and Future: Energy, Climate, Cultures. An exhibition coinciding with the Art & Future symposium. Dunedin School of Art gallery, 10 – 21 October 2016
On opening night 13 October, 2016, I used a GoPro camera mounted above the posters alongside the projector to record the disappearance of the coal sack prints from the stack. The video captured some great footage so now for the post production! I’m hoping to use the edited video in an exhibition in the near future.
A network of trans-Tasman artists have come together on a residency in association with the Plab to hold an exhibition of printmedia and fine art prints related to politics and current events at the Dunedin School of Art.
An exhibition celebrating the Unesco Year of Light 2015 that brings together scientists from the University of Otago and artists through the Dunedin School of Art. Kiri Mitchell and I teamed up with Janice Lord from the Botany Dept who specialises in night time pollinators in the Subantarctic Islands. We collaborated with braille transcribers Dave Allen and Paula Waby to produce an artists’ book of Dada poetry and the labels for the works in the show.

The OUSA Art Week saw the ‘Salon des femmes’ make an appearance at the Red Thread Gallery on 6 August, 2015. My work for this pop up show was documentation of an intervention at the art school a few weeks earlier on the day of a seminar on art and climate change. Printed paper towels with subtle messages about climate change were inserted into the paper towel dispensers in all the DSA public toilets.
My work ‘Angel as Greek tragedy’ (after Klee)’, screenprint, was accepted for the Otago Art Society’s Edinburgh Art Awards. 1-30 August, 2015
