Jennifer Marshall, a great print-maker and painter, ex Adelaide, Sydney, Ballarat, Bendigo, and now living in Hobart, has a retrospective of her work at Manly Art Gallery and Museum.
Reviewer Paul McJillick says “It is a knockout and anyone disposed to be moved by great art must go …
This is a master printer at the height of her powers. In fact, it is almost a virtuoso show which reveals the full potential of incisive printmaking, from linocut and woodcut to drypoint and etching, not to mention what happens when these kinds of marks are applied as paint.
Marshall’s achievement is the perfect marriage of technique and meaning, and – like Matisse – a harmony between the recognisable world and its abstract forms”
The exhibition closes 11 March, 2012. Go there!
