When we were passing through Mildura we went to ‘The Art Vault’. They have a residency program and the current residency exhibition was one by Tom Civil. My internet research shows that he does quite a few types of art, but is a printmaker, as evidenced by the above prints that were on display at the exhibition.
I have chosen these prints to include as they are plant based images for the current exercise. I am attracted to the unusual circular presentation that gives me a sense of looking through a hole to a glimpse of another world, or looking down a microscope. The linear nature of the images looks like drawing but with a greater variation in quality of line that is possible with a print. I’m not sure but I would think these are etchings.
