Jillian Ciemitis receives award from City of Swan, Mayor Charlie Zannino
Jillian Ciemitis received the Western Australian Print Makers Association Excellence Award for her hand printed screen print “Exterieur Interieur”. The work was the outcome of her 2011 photographic exploration of the Louvre, Paris and was regarded as a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional themes and forms.
Jillian Ciemitis was Artist in Residence at Edith Cowan University Printmaking Studio in Perth, Western Australia during August – September, 2012. Throughout the six week residency, Jillian conceived and screen printed Biophilia Hypothesis, a series of photographic screen prints which transmogrify branch patterning so that the resulting images become meditations on neural pathways and plasticity.
