At the opening of 'As far as the eye can see'
'As far as the eye can see' is a wonderful example of how there is such diversity in artists and their approaches to a theme like the Australian landscape. Situated in the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre it is a gigantic space and beautifully curated by Rilka Oakley, it does justice to such an array of diverse artists and their works. Though the theme was landscape, each artist approached it in a personal way often exploring an unease with changes in the environment. And what differences in approaches to the notion of 'print'. There were works that used traditional processes like etching, but buried in the garden like Locust Jones suite of prints and plates, or bathed in the sea by artist Hellen Muller. There were combinations of new technologies with classical processes by artists Jan Davis and Rochelle Summerfield. The exhibition is a great example of how artists explore their Australian environment and celebrates the variety of approaches in printmaking today .
