About the work:
Groove, Original Artwork by Jennifer Tarry-Smith.
This piece is part of Chromatic Retreat, a group exhibition showcasing the work of 17 Australian artists exploring their practice within the limits of a largely achromatic palette.
“My artworks spring from the junction between the discipline of my chosen medium and the almost unconscious, meditative state that drives the image making process. Printmaking is imperative to my practice and the imagery is derived from the use of black and white, or line and negative space. The processing of the plate and the proofing stages before printing are all done in black, just as the first lithographs were made. My prints originate from greyscale; the addition of colour, if it is used, comes later,” Tarry-Smith says.
About the Artist:
Jennifer Tarry-Smith is a Melbourne based artist working predominantly in printmaking. She has a particular interest in combining printmaking with her passion for jazz music. In fusing these elements, Jennifer expresses the extemporary and impulsive nature of jazz improvisation in her monotype and lithographic prints.
