Coming up in October is an exhibition of Milan Milojevic’s prints which combine traditional techniques with digital. The woodblocks and etchings are enriched with digital emphasis, but still maintain the integrity of the hand worked images. "Imaginary Worlds" is the title for the Port Jackson Press Gallery exhibition, on show from October 8 to November 5. Milan’s "…work explores notions of self-portraiture and cultural identity, depicting hybrid creatures or beasts based on those described by poet and writer Jorges Luis Borges in his Book of Imaginary Beings." (Imprint, Spring 2005). The exhibition will also be online from October 6 on the Port Jackson Press site.
