A Survey of Contemporary Western Australian Printmaking
Jillian Ciemitis screen print Pinnacle was on show at the Mundaring Arts Centre as part of the 26 S 121 E On the Map a Survey of Contemporary West Australian Printmaking. Featuring the work of 35 West Australian printmakers. Curated by Laura A Taylor.
On May 26, 2017, John Carey MLA, State Member for Perth and Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier launched a new book at the State Theatre of Western Australia.
The book “Skull Within Skin” by Carl Altmann and Dr Jan Altmann profiles selected works and projects by Peteris and Jillian Ciemitis. The 108 page book gave Jillian and Peteris Ciemitis opportunity to survey the spectrum of their work over the preceeding 10 years, and provide a framework for viewing their evolving narratives.
The title borrows from T.S. Elliott, quoted by Dr Altmann in describing the quality of the Ciemitis’ work as being able to see below the surface, or to quote Elliott, “the skull within the skin”.
The book retails for AUD$29.00 and is available from the bookstores shown above.
It will also be available on-line from this website shortly (or can be purchased now by emailing email@example.com).
