An announcement from the Multiple research group at the Centre for Fine Print Research:
We are delighted to announce that Dr Tim Mosely of Queensland College of Art will give a free public lecture on artists’ books and printmaking to launch an exhibition of Australian artists’ books and prints from the Griffith Centre for Creative Arts Research, here at Bower Ashton on Thursday 30th June 2016 at 3pm in 4B17.
Tim hosted Stephanie’s visit to Queensland College of Art last summer where she collaborated with him on printmaking and he taught her pulp-printing. We have collaborated with Tim on artists’ books and printmaking projects in Australia and the UK, and this will be a great opportunity to find out more about Australian printmaking. Some info about Tim here: http://www.gccar.com.au/membersfulltim-mosely
The talk will be followed by a drinks reception / private view of the exhibition in C-block print studios. All welcome. RSVP to Sarah to reserve your place please as we have a maximum capacity of 50 and places are going fast.
Why not make a day of it? Tim is bringing one of his PhD students Blair Coffey with him, who will give a talk about his printmaking practice/PhD project at 11am the same day, all of you are welcome, details below. You could have a day out here, get lunch in the canteen or Ashton Court and go to both talks and the reception.

“My art practice utilises printmaking techniques to explore the metaphoric life of DNA, and negotiate the visualisation of my body as a disembodied archive of data. In 2015 my fully sequenced genome was delivered to me via the cloud-based platform DNAnexus. Using a practice-led research methodology in the studio, I create images that incorporate appropriated imagery and visual representations of genetic information. I have found the medium of printmaking ideally suited to engage with genetic discourses. My practice includes photo printmaking techniques such as screenprinting and photopolymer intaglio. I am currently a PhD candidate at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.” blaircoffey.com.au
