There are two printmakers heading for assessment at the honours level this year. Their work will be on show at the Plimsoll Gallery along with other students completing their honours year.
Toni Ten BenselÂ has been working extensively with polymer lithography plates, digital and other traditional printmaking techniques to produceÂ complex layersÂ in her work. Exploring family relationships, the complexity of her method reflects the complexity of her subject.
Suzi Tyson works primarily with etching and drypoint. Concerned with the tactile and emotive meeting of theÂ ocean and the sand, her work reflects the colour and light you find at such a junction.
The honours exhibition has anÂ opening night from 6pm, Friday November 24 and the show continues onÂ Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 November from 10am to 4pm at the Plimsoll Gallery, Hunter Street, Hobart.
