about the exhibition

John Pratt’s print and drawings are often concerned with the way physical surroundings evoke various states of being, both of the mind and body. Passage, exploring the concept of flight, began with a journey across the wide landscape of the Hay Plain, where the artist came across an eagle’s wing. John says “The ‘find’ initially provoked a playful series of drawings of the wing itself before evolving into a more abstract reflection on the transient nature of flight and transitional space.” The disparate elements of woodcut, stencil and collage come together in an intense series expressing John’s excitement at working across his chosen mediums.

John is a highly regarded printmaker who has exhibited frequently in Australia and overseas since the 1970s.  He has recently retired from the printmedia and drawing workshop at the Canberra School of Art, where he taught for just over thirty years.  His works are held in many collections, including the National Gallery of Australia, the Queensland Art Gallery, the State Library of New South Wales, the Australian National University, Central Queensland University, Latrobe University, the University of Western Australia, the Print Council of Australia and KPMG.
