During their visit, the esteemed members of the Hermannsburg School of Art were joined by emerging Watercolourist and acclaimed Hermannsburg Potter, Clara Inkamala. Together, the artists completed a Printmaking Residency at the ANU studios, generously hosted by Alison Alder, Rebecca Mayo, Nicci Haynes and current students. Following on from a previous residency held in 2015, Gloria and Lenie were proud to share with Clara their unique methods for relief printing - the carving of imagery of their West MacDonnell Ranges landscapes into lino plates.
The artists brought with them intaglio prints from the editions that were executed as part of the original residency, as well as recent watercolour pieces that were shown in a commercial exhibition titled ‘Pmara Nurnakanha Parta- kurta (Our country, hill habitats)’ held at the Photospace room at the ANU School of Art.
We had a wonderful time with old friends and new, thank you to everyone for all of your support!
