Entry for Silk Cut Lino-Print Awards 2008
This print was produced for The Silk Cut Awards in Australia. The work comments on the gulf between the presentation of reality on TV and the 'actuality' of real life.
The 8 prints formed a journey between 2 points on the West Coast of Auckland, following a line drawn on a map in the way of pioneer cartographers. The images were derived from drawings, photographs and other field research obtained on the 2 day walk along the route. The expedition was undertaken by Neil Buddle and Jason Burgess, who documented the journey. Jason Burgess has subsequently also produced work from this trip. The 8 prints were annotated with specific locations and times and each featured a line from a small poem written to accompany the prints. These works were redeveloped for Auckland store, Pauanesia (See 'Towards Series').
Another trip taken in 2009, will form the basis for a new project along similar lines entitled 'Waterline'.
