'There and back again solo exhibition' opening, Nov. 2017

canberra contemporary art space, 19 furneaux st, manuka, 09 – 19 november 2017

There and back again is an exhibition of screen prints by Canberra based visual artist Jemima Parker exploring moments in time and experience of place, through photography and screen printing processes. This exhibition is being presented as part of DESIGN Canberra, celebrating and promoting Canberra as a global city of design.

Jemima has taken images of her local surrounds, childhood home and recent travels throughout Australia and abroad - a record of fleeting moments captured on her phone. She re-invents the images as screen prints - cutting down paper, mixing inks and hand printing, bringing the works slowly to life – a direct contrast to today’s instantly posted image. Soft, faded backgrounds, and warm, brown / black for the images themselves, suggest these contemporary scenes are in fact of a bygone time, evoking nostalgia.

A big thanks to the lovely crew at Capital Brewing for their sponsorship of the opening event.
