Brush & Press is a print focused studio showcasing works on paper & linen by local and interstate artists Laura Castell, Mini Graff, Jo Lankester, and Janet Parker-Smith.
At this pop-up, you will see artists in action showcasing the process of printmaking and you will be given the opportunity to purchase a piece of work!
Laura is originally from Venezuela and a trained biologist – a practice that has given her close contact with nature. Castell became a full-time artist in 2014 and her interests revolve around two main topics- often treated separately, nature and the human condition. She works in a variety of media, with printmaking a major focus, especially relief printmaking, but more recently exploring the combination of techniques.
Mini is a New Zealand born, Sydney-based street artist who works in and around the city’s urban fringe. The streets and inhabitants of the area provide the content and impetus for her work. Mini Graff stencils and prints images onto a variety of media (walls, boards, vinyl, paper, rarely canvas) which strongly relate to the given environment and community, transforming an anonymous repetitive urban landscape into a unique and personal aesthetic experience.
Jo is a passionate printmaker living and working in Townsville, North Queensland. The natural environment informs her uniquely printed fine art prints. Mark-making and experimentation is the process behind the work. Her focus in the medium of Collagraph is an ongoing enquiry resulting in the extension of the parameters of both the medium and her own visual language.
Janet is a Sydney based artist who works with Printmedia, Sculpture and Altered books. She has been exhibiting nationally and internationally for 20 years.
Parker-Snith is represented by Van Rensberg Gallery, Hong Kong and supported by May Space, Sydney where she has had several solo exhibitions, and M Contemporary Gallery, Sydney.
