WA artist, Katie Breckon, visited in December, accompanied by several parcels of stainless steel and aluminium plates. Working with Basil, she etched the aluminium pieces, inked up the weathered steel and tried a large number of combinations on the Hilton Press. The larger plates went almost to the edges of the press, so the blankets were on and off regularly as they tried to get the most out of these found objects from Derby in the far north-west of the country. Katie works at Mowandjum Arts on the Gibb River Rd and is enjoying some time “Down South” on her own work in Braidwood and, now, in Fremantle.
