CONGRATULATIONS TO RONA GREEN - WINNER OF THE 2006 SILK CUT AWARD FOR LINOCUT PRINTS -19th August 2006
Rona Green has won this years Silk Cut Award with her print, Dally Boy.
Tattooed and menacing, Green's linocut conveys a striking graphic simplicity. In her recent body of work the symbology of tattoos and their specific meanings remain a strong component.

Deceiver's of the Pack running from 2 - 30 September at the Port Jackson Press Print Room, will feature new works by Rona Green and Rew Hanks, both exceptional, contemporary Australian printmakers . - Click for more
