Dr Sasha Grishin's pioneering study examines the complex fabric of the art of printmaking in Australia today. Drawing exclusively on the work of Australian artists making prints from 1990 to 1995 he argues for a revival of interest in Australian printmaking in recent years. He identifies three principal reasons for this revival: the impact of new technologies, such as computer-manipulated images and laser prints; the impact of Australian Aboriginal prints; and the new relationship which Australian printmakers are establishing with the Asia Pacific region. Dr Grishin examines closely the activities of 157 leading Australian printmakers. For each artist he provides an overview of their work and reproduces one of their recent prints. Very few of these prints have been reproduced before and they provide a fresh insight into a vigorous art form unknown to much of the Australian art community.
