Under Pressure – Significance in Surface, Yvonne Moloney-Law opens tonight (Jan13) at 6 pm at the Butter Factory Arts Centre, 11A Maple Street, Cooroy.
The exhibition is a pictorial journey of experimental mark making that exploits media and surfaces that form the contemporary printmaking practice of Yvonne Moloney-Law.
Mixed media works and large scale intaglio prints reference the geography of Capricornia, the Tarkine and Arthur River regions of Tasmania as well as the water catchment areas of the Glasshouse Mountains of the Sunshine Coast. Each resembles a cartographic map superimposed with layers of meaning influenced by the traditional custodians and scientific research associated with each landscape.
Yvonne Maloney Law is from Yeppoon with long farming history in the region dating back to the mid-1860s. She completed a Dip VA in 2004, majoring in Painting & Printmaking and is a member of the Capricornia Printmakers. She has an impressive list of awards and exhibitions under her belt, including selection in the Burnie Print Prize and the Noosa Art Award both in 2014.
A true experimental printmaker, Yvonne’s art work takes the rivers, water catchments, mountains and estuaries and depicts the landscape as poetic images by entwining materials, medium and topics to produce images that are unique to her signature. Her studio is located on the original family land overlooking the Volcanic Trachyte Plugs of Capricornia at Bondoola.
Exhibition dates: Friday 13 January until Wednesday 19 February 2017
The Butter Factory is open 10am – 4pm weekdays, 10am – 3pm weekends (closed Mondays) and entry is free.
