Project Description

Rush Mode

For the past 5 years I have admired the music and performances of Canadian jazz trumpeter, composer & vocalist Mike Field.  His 2014 album, Rush Mode, was the inspiration for the theme of this exhibition and I’m grateful to Mike for generously allowing me to ‘borrow’ it.  (Imitation, after all, is the highest form of flattery!)  The Rush of humanity and urbanity.

The Rush Mode artworks are a combination of etchings and collagraphs, and reflect a transition in my practice to ‘post-press’ applications of water colours and charcoal.  Rush Mode debuted in 2019 at Marios in Fitzroy.
