It's always very exciting to find the work of printmakers who I've never known about. It's even more exciting when I find that they're living right here in Melbourne. I came across Georgia Thorpe's work when reading the latest edition of Imprint (Journal of the Print Council of Australia). The image here is one of her prints: Rising Purple. I just love the colours and the floating quality in the work. It's a woodcut monotype. You just have to click on this link to see more in her gallery. She tells me she will be exhibiting some of her work in Melbourne this September. Without a doubt I'll be going along to see her prints in person.
