I am a South Australian visual artist working with a range of traditional and digital processes including printmaking, encaustic and oil painting, pokerwork on wooden panels, artist books, on-glaze porcelain, and small scale bronze casting. In my current work I incorporate a cast of creatures and plants, which have become part of my visual language, to create various scenarios. The upside-down nature of some images reflects the upside-down nature of life. My characters live in a world where nothing is certain.
I teach part-time at Adelaide College of the Arts. In 1998 I published ‘Printmaking with Photopolymer Plates’ and I run workshops in printmaking and artist books in Australia and overseas.
I am running 4 workshops in my Welland studio before I leave for Trentham in July 2014, so if you are interested download my Weekend Printmaking Workshops leaflet and book in!!
The first workshop for 2014 Introduction to Photopolymer Printmaking (February 22-23) has been rescheduled to Saturday-Sunday March 29-30.
As the SA contact person for Enjay presses I have an s24 etching press with a bed size of 62 x 130cm on display in my studio. If you are interested contact me via email or phone and come and have a look at the press. For more information on Enjay presses visit Neil’s website: www.enjaypresses.com.au
