These prints are the second exhibition featuring the UK artists Greg Fuller, Jason Hicklin and Tracy Hill.
This new exhibition investigates the Hunter River and surrounding Ocean, and its similarities with the Mersey.
In 2016 Fuller, Hicklin and Hill were invited to participate in the Lock-Up’s Artist in Residence Programme in Newcastle. This allowed them time and support to immerse themselves in walks along the edges of the Hunter River, to reflect on the industrial past and present and to walk the shoreline of the Pacific, where the River enters the Ocean.
“My aim is to show the beauty of post-industrial landscapes through my artworks; to question our interpretation of, and to be cautious of, the digital data sources on which we are increasingly reliant to help us navigate; above all I aim to invite personal encounters with forgotten landscapes.” (Tracy Hill, 2019)
|The surrounding landscape of Newcastle, NSW and Printmaking are the central elements to these works and it is our interpretation of your landscape.|
