Northern Impressions – a celebration of contemporary printmaking

About

Northern Impressions is a vibrant celebration of Australian contemporary fine art prints. This exhibition takes its audience on a rich visual journey through the Australian landscape and into Aboriginal ‘country’, where the intrinsic connection the exhibiting artists have to land is given powerful visual form through the medium of printmaking. The exhibition celebrates the highlights of artistic collaborations between some of Australia’s most talented artists and professional printmakers working at Northern Editions at Charles Darwin University.

Northern Impressions
showcases 53 limited edition prints by artists from across the Top End, Central Australia, Mornington and Bentinck Islands and Kimberley regions. The exhibition reveals the beauty and diversity of artistic expression in these regions, each with their own distinct visual language. Produced with Northern Editions in Darwin since 2004, this selection of the printmaking studio’s finest prints will challenge and delight audience perceptions of the printmaking medium, displaying its limitless potential for collaborative virtuosity, technical excellence and luminous colour.

An iconic Northern Territory art institution, Northern Editions is well known locally and nationally for the limited edition fine art prints it produces. The Northern Editions team of printmakers have been collaborating with Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists to produce fine art prints since 1993 through the printmaking workshops they hold, which often take place in remote communities as well as at the Darwin studio. Together, printmakers and artists have collaborated to create prints that celebrate the strength, beauty and diversity of printmaking in northern Australia.
