We were invited by Koskela to curate an exhibition as part of Art & About Sydney. Rituals is a collection of identities, a series of limited edition hand pulled letterpress prints. The exhibition features original work from ten illustrators from around Australia including: Beci Orpin, Ben Ashton-Bell, Drunk Park, Eirian Chapman, Georgia Perry, Kindred Studio,Lauren Carney, Luke Lucas, Malade Pathetics and Spew Corp. We invited the illustrators to create work around our supplied eye shape with the view of exploring the concept of identity, collaboration and the unintended compositions that come through the ritual of printmaking.
After showing in Sydney, the work is now exhibiting in our workshop in Melbourne until December 21. The prints are available to purchase in our online shop.
Rituals is printed on Stephen Scrambled White, a 100% carbon neutral paper provided by Spicers, and letterpress printed by hand on an Asbern Proof Press (c. 1969) in Melbourne, Australia.
