52 Weeks Exhibition, 22March-10Apr, Devonport

Three printmakers, Susan Hurrell-Fieldes, Celia Walker and Susanne Khouri, 
have embarked on a project called 52 Weeks (A Year in the Life of Three Printmakers) 
marking the passage of a year by each making one printed work 15x15cm per week,
beginning in March 2013.

The exhibition is on display at Depot Artspace in Devonport from 22 March - 10 April,
with the opening this Saturday at 2pm. Stop in and have a look!

As the year progressed, a variety of printmaking methodologies were used 
to make personal marks and explorations, record events and places, 
make visual notations of the passing weeks. 
Three very different approaches demonstrate the various ways the artists use in their mark-making. 
Each artist has chosen and utilized strategies that best express their personal intentions and working styles.

Although primarily abstract, Susan Hurrell-Fieldes’ work evokes themes of disintegration, instability and loss. Celia Walker’s interest in landscape and memory is a constant thread 
through works which register personal travels and cartographic histories. 
Susanne Khouri focuses on more personal themes concerning family and relationships across generations, weaving into her work the connection with her young granddaughter.
The common thread between the artists is a love of printmaking as an art form.
