My art explores the connections that surrounds human impact on islands. Since 2014 I have been investigating, with onsite research, small islands, World Heritage listed and isolated environments. Taking me to the Galapagos (Ecuador 2014), Faroe (the North Sea 2016) Lord Howe (NSW 2015) and Deception Islands (Antarctica 2017). Examining through immersive residencies as artist/tourist, traveller, observer, I look beyond the rhetoric to create artworks and installations that examine the impact of the Anthropocene and consumerism, on the Utopian destination. Through my interdisciplinary eco-critical vision creating a discourse via the traditions of printmedia, photography and drawing, to the new media of video, sound and installations.
Nina Juniper graduated in 2012 from Curtin University in Western Australia with a Bachelor of Humanities (Fine Art), majoring in Printmaking. Hailing from Perth, she has worked at the Fremantle Arts Centre, Perth Institute for Contemporary Art and as the Printmaking Technician at Curtin University before attaining her current position as the Printmaking Studio Technician at the National Art School, where she continues to expand her knowledge of printmaking. Nina’s art practice stems from an interest in the built environment and public spaces. Working predominately in the medium of screenprinting, her work explores architectural spaces, the public realm and spatial history through a variety of different local sites. Of particular interest in recent works are construction and deconstruction sites and their associated support structures. These structures, although temporal in nature, have now become a dominant visual part of the contemporary cityscape, at times providing a pleasing abstracted composition that characterises a new way of seeing and mapping the environment.
Max graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts from Sydney College of the Arts (SCA) and a Studio Masters in Printmaking from UNSW Art and Design. He spent 2013 co-running Varietê Gallery in Guadalajara, Mexico and presently lives and works in Sydney.

Ruth Burgess organised two outings for Sydney Printmakers to the Art Gallery of New South Wales Study Room to view prints she had collected for the art gallery during her many trips to China. It was a very interesting and rewarding opportunity. Ruth told many stories about her escapades in China and showed us some extraordinary prints.
Ruth would like to remind us that the Study Room is a free service by the Art Gallery. You can book time in the Study room and request specific prints and the work of specific artists to be made available to you.
