about the exhibition
The prints of GW Bot engage with the environment in a topographic and metaphysical sense and can be interpreted as an allegory for a person’s passage through life. Typically, her work features strong silhouettes, a natural colour palette, course visual textures and complex rhythmic patterns. Through her uniquevisual language of glyphs, GW Bot maps the landscape – not literally, but intuitively – with her markings always born from personal experience. Printmaking is Bot’s primary medium, and her use of the linocut allows for flexibility of line and intricate repetition of pattern.
