French Connections, rewound

In May this year, French Connections commenced with a two-week study tour of Paris.

French Connections is part of an international project instigated and led by Anne Virgo OAM, Director of Australian Print Workshop, which aims to generate a significant body of work in the print medium.

We were thrilled to be invited, alongside two other artists, Martin Bell and Megan Cope, and now that we have returned, we are keen to make new work inspired by all the incredible material we saw, collections we explored, and places we scampered through. 

But before we do, rewind to see the story so far,

Like an El Lissitzky innovation, we made Paris our ‘proun’, a "construction to be looked at from all sides: from above, from below, and from around"
