Congratulations to Sydney Printmakers members Seong Cho, Nathalie Hartog Gautier and Anne Starling, who are finalists in this years Fremantle Print Awards.
My art practice explores human interaction with the urban environment. The menacing impact of industry and impending development is a constant themein my images. Nuclear Family is a social narrative of vanishing suburbia. The image relies on a ‘play on words’ – the dual meaning of ‘nuclear’ allows a disquieting image to masquerade as family intimacy. The urban landscape has been compromised to accommodate progress and as a result society co exists with the ever increasing by products of progress. The family unit stands proudly in the front of their home. The image of the ‘Great Australian Dream’ exudes safety and familiarity but all is not perfect. Nuclear Family is an image of contrasts, a ‘snap shot’ of modern society living under the threat of industrial overload.
We’re excited to present a new addition to the gallery – James Makin Gallery Editions. Launching online tomorrow 1 August, Editions offers a rich collection of original works on paper by contemporary and historic Australian printmakers.
