A very special chair

Yesterday Mr A and I visited a really special exhibition by Australian artist Cressida Campbell. As well as being an exceptional talent, her approach to woodcut art is quite different in that she draws an image onto plywood, carves it, then paints it in watercolours and lets it dry for a few days before spraying it with water and making a unique print from it. My favourite was ‘The Danish Chair’, but you can see all the works from her current exhibition for yourself at Phillip Bacon Galleries at New Farm until August 3 or on their website. Wow!
