A week-long residency at the Old Schoolhouse at St. Augustine’s prompted an investigation of the space both aesthetically and conceptually. Out of this came a series of works in response to two major reference points: architecture and repetition.
These two concepts, both utilised by religion, relate naturally to the secular process of printmaking. The artist uses her experience of the printmaking studio as a structure to create an environment in which architecture and repetition illuminate how humans create institutions; and why they seem to be so integral to us as human beings.
