'Sydney Harbour Bridge' 2018-07-09
Glen Farmer was artist in residence at Sydney College of the Arts in September 2001. He worked directly on the plate to produce this etching following a visit to Sydney Harbour. It was important to Glen to return to Jilamara (Melville Island) with something to show for his time in Sydney.”Pretty exciting [Sydney], plenty of things to see and do. Meet different people, meet the Redfern people and share culture”. The print was editioned by Jilamara Arts and Craft, printed by Franck Gohier of Redhand Prints in November 2001. In 2018, a screen print of Glen’s Sydney Harbour design was created.
Our Jilamara textiles are hand screen printed by a team of 4 printers, in the Nancy Henry Ripijingimpi screenprinting studio at Jilamara. Each meterage is unique and will most likely have one or two bush touches (a little Milikapiti earth, a smudge of ochre etc). We hope these imperfections remind you of where these textiles were made. We use hanky linen, 100% cotton and a cotton polyester blend. Fabric is sold in 2-metre lengths. Please enquire about colourways or if you have something else in mind.
