Throughout 2018 School of Arts and Humanities graduates Temiliy Peace and Sarah Robinson were selected as artists in residence through the fold project in the printmaking studios at ECU.
fold is a research arm of CREATEC and aims to experimentally investigate new forms of the artist’s book through word and image.
The work of Temily investigated memory and the way it can be both fleeting and persistent. She investigated this through several hand made books using images of herself and her family but disrupting these images through collages and other means.
Sarah Robinson is a highly skilled printmaker who was trained in the UK at the Royal Academy of Arts recently completed her practice-led research PhD at ECU where she investigated new and old printmaking techniques in response to caves in UK and Margaret River. Her work questioned embodiment and real life experiences in relation to the possible benefit of enhancing perception through new technology. She is also interested in an increasing distance which is being created through new print technologies and how this might alter our perceptions of the world around us.
As a direct follow up Sarah made experimental prints during her residency through fold In the printmaking studios of ECU.
