Anna Russell’s entry for the Burnie Print Prize has been acquired by the Gallery.
Anna harvested and distilled natural materials – saltbush and red river gum bark – and stained the paper before printing in relief and intaglio. Bees’ wax was ideal to create the wandering corrugations. The gritty red earth offered striking textures.
The work celebrates the old metal water tanks, corrugated like the sheds and the roads, which are key to all settlement in outback Australia.
Six members of Sydney Printmakers are finalists in the Burnie Print Prize 2019: Anna Russell, Gary Shinfield, Carolyn Craig, Rew Hanks, Laura Stark, Anne Starling.
And Gary Shinfield, Anne Starling and Rew Hanks are finalists in the Haugensund International Festival for Artists Relief Print in Norway.
Please note the gallery is open Thursday to Sunday from 11am until 4 pm.
