Orchid Underworld, digital print from 6 drypoint intaglio prints
The cross species mirroring of form, and the lure for pollination, are the specialty of orchids; the symbiotic transfer of nutrient from fungus to root. Orchids are sensual, strange, finely attuned and minutely adapted to their ecological niche.
Deborah Wace brings Tasmanian orchids up close and personal with large printed Intaglio Drypoint and Monoprint works, as well as botanical specimen arrangements and the display of her printmaking processes. Deborah’s passion and advocacy for wild habitat infuses her artwork and delights the senses.
