Imprints - Contemporary Printmaking

The invention of the printing press brought us into the age of mass production. The artist has however transformed and pushed the boundaries of the medium to produce works which represent major breakthroughs in creative expression, placing print alongside sculpture and painting.
The Muswellbrook Shire Art Collection has a diverse range of prints which include the four major print types. When brought together, the works convey the multiplicity of contemporary printmaking.
From the fine lined detail found in Rew Hank’s Fearless Tassie Tiger Hunter to the rich, coloured abstract forms of Helene Leane’s monoprint Flooded Billabong,
contemplate the vast and varied processes of the contemporary print.
