Opening in the Small Dog Gallery
Saturday 22 March 2 – 3.30pm
Three printmakers, Susan Hurrell-Fieldes, Susanne Khouri and Celia Walker embarked on a project marking the passage of a year by each making one printed work per week, beginning in March 2013. As the year progressed, a variety of printmaking methodologies were used to make personal marks and explorations, record events and places, and make visual notations of the passing weeks. Three very different approaches demonstrate the various ways the artists use in their mark-making. Each artist has chosen and utilised strategies that best express their personal intentions and working styles.
Although primarily abstract, Susan Hurrell-Fieldes’ work evokes themes of disintegration, instability and loss.
Susanne Khouri focuses on more personal themes concerning family and relationships across generations, weaving into her work the connection with her young granddaughter.
Celia Walker’s interest in landscape and memory is a constant thread through works which register personal travels and cartographic histories.
