Together with Olsen Gallery and Olsen Annexe, celebrated Sydney-based artist Laura Jones presents two highly anticipated exhibitions of new work. Staged just one week apart, the solo presentations herald Jones’ return to still life subjects, a significant departure from her recent bodies of work made around sombre themes of climatic degradation. “Painting flowers always instils a certain hope in me”, she says.

‘Monotypes’ is an appropriately titled exhibition of unique monotype prints produced in conjunction with North Sydney’s Whaling Road Studio. To make these works on paper, Jones painted her beloved wildflowers directly onto Perspex sheets using coloured printmaking inks. Together with damp Rives paper, the compositions are rolled through a traditional press by way of transferring the paint layer in one equal gesture. In many ways this process is the antithesis of painting, enlivened by negative space and reductive mark-making rather than the opposite. Now in its 44th year, Whaling Road Studio is celebrated for its vivacious approach to printmaking.

Opening event: Nov 25 5-7pm.
