Discussion with Jan Palethorpe
Roo tails, Lino cuts, Murals & Bats
Practicing as an artist in Australia for over 30 years and being a hungry traveller, I have had opportunities to share the joy of making art with people from remote Aboriginal communities, to incarcerated young offenders, autistic children and migrant refugees. Printmaking has been the medium which has been central to this practice. Jan will discuss the challenges of working in adverse situations with limited resources, and the magic that can happen in such environments.
