Curatorial Assistant of Australian Art at the National Gallery of Australia, Deirdre Cannon will present an illustrated lecture exploring the artist, Barbara Brash and the evolution of her innovative and expressive practice as a key artist in Melbourne’s printmaking revival of the 1950s and ’60s.

Throughout her career Brash consistently tested the boundaries of the printed medium, often combining several printmaking processes in her works, and embracing the power and potential of abstract forms through the synthesis of colour, gesture and texture in her impressions of landscapes and the natural world. Bringing together woodcuts, linocuts, lithographs and screenprints from throughout the artist’s career, Barbara Brash—Holding Form provides an insight into the evolution of Brash’s innovative and expressive practice.
