Fractured

Catherine Rogers

31 March 2017

This is an exhibition of exquisite prints by emergent artist Catherine Rogers. In 2016, Catherine travelled to Iceland, a place of stunning and volatile landscape.

On her return to Tasmania, Catherine designed a series of works to communicate the wonder she felt in a landscape so different to home. The print series in this first solo exhibition is regular in form and restrained in size and colour. The subject matter is reduced to tiny marks made in lino, each gouge a tiny part of an overall scheme that describes grand movements of the earths crust, glaciers, volcanoes and ice fields.

Each print evokes surface beyond geology and the planet’s surface. There are reminders of the drapery of a posed figure (Jokull), or the pattern of woven fabric (Glacial Rift), the ocean or the forest. The remarkable precision of the marks is unbroken by flaws and is a triumph of discipline and concentration. The contrast between our own ancient, eroded landscape with a turbulent Northern land is beautifully evoked by this lovely series.
