The culmination of the work that I had been undertaking with Melbourne artist - Damon Kowarsky - was an exhibition in Philadelphia, USA which opened on Thursday the 6th of April.
Damon had turned drawings from his time visiting Udaipur into a suite of 6 etchings. We had printed these together as linework at Portland Bay Press in South Eastern Victoria in 2016. I had since been working to hand colour 2 full sets of these prints using a mixture of gouache and watercolour.
Originally I had been working on these with my own imaginings of Indian light, colours, architecture and life, in mind - but having visited India for the first time in January of this year I returned with some unshakeable inspiration that is very evident to those that have also visited this amazing and vibrant country.
