Immensity Unique | Nanette Balchin 2020

Monoprint, relief print, mixed media, $240
The red centre is an ancient landscape and was once a great inland sea. It's antiquity, immensity and energy is awe inspiring. Yet I felt a sense of deep calm in the sacred places of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. I felt the power of the rocks, sky, waterholes and the red earth of this landscape, formed over millions of years. My work is a response to the intense colours textures and contrasts in the central Australian landscape and the intrinsic spirituality of the place.

Big River Bend I Diptych, unique state | Michelle Black 2020

Intaglio Oil-based ink on cotton rag paper, $1,400.00
There is no doubt that central Queensland is a landscape of extremes, with drenching rains, tropical cyclones and expansive floods contrasting with long periods of severe drought. Over-grazing and poor land management can contribute to huge quantities of sediment being lost downstream during heavy rain after drought, flowing to the ocean and the reef. A series of unique state prints has been created using Fitzroy River sediment in the printing matrix, textures and flows and marks in the mud recording environmental processes and river landscape forms in ink.

The Wave Unique Print | Linda Douglas 2020

Cyanotype, linocut on Rosapina paper, $200.00
Tides, and the spread of water across the planet, all rely on the gravitational pull of the moon. Without it, the hours and day would change, the earth would slow down and the ocean tides would shrink. The push and pull between earth, sun and moon create two expansive 'waves' which undulate around our planet; these waves are our high and low tides which man's life and patterns rely on.

The Tidal Moon Unique Print | Linda Douglas 2020

Cyanotype, linocut on Rosapina paper, $350.00

Be Water Set of 5 | Nora Hanasy 2020

Monoprint Collage, $250.00
This work was inspired by a quote I love by Bruce Lee: "Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. Be water, my friend."

First Drops 1 & 2 Unique diptych | Angela Heffer 2020

Monoprint on handmade paper, $
Rain. The build-up, the sound, the smell, the joy, the way the first drops roll off the parched earth, lifting the dust with them.

My monoprint resulted from dripping and rolling blockprinting ink and water onto a glass sheet, then pressing paper made from recycled egg cartons onto that. The partly dried white ink created the effect of water not adhering to dry dust.

High and Dry Var 1/4 | Carmel Knowles 2020

Cyanotype, hand coloured, $200.00
This work was inspired by colloquialisms which make references to water like 'keeping your head above water', 'out of your depth', 'treading water', 'drifting with the tide' and of course, 'up the proverbial creek without a paddle'.

In the current world climate, many people from certain areas and post codes are struggling to keep their heads above water during lockdown and in isolation. As world and country borders become more rigidly defined, many stateless people are left high and dry in their search for a post code.

Wishful Fishing Var 1/4 | Amanda Lawrence 2020

Multiplate Linoprint, $150.00
The declaration of commercial fishing net closures in 2015 was welcomed by my family who has spent many years enjoying the waters of Capricornia. Some of the species caught in the estuarine creeks along our coastline are represented against a background evoking the glowing bioluminescence we played with as children.

Monet's Dream Unique Diptych | Peta Lloyd 2020

Monoprint, encaustic medium, wood, $450.00
Inspired from Monet's paintings of lilies, I've mono printed lilies and weeds found in and around my dam onto paper soaked in water from my dam.

The Beauty of Weeds - One Unique | Peta Lloyd 2020

Monoprint, fabric, paper, $250.00
This work combines monoprints from weeds and lilies onto fabrics and papers, free motion machine stitch and hand stitch create further layers to the work. Weeds have a unique beauty of their own, like other plants they require water for their survival.

Some weeds are growing along the edges of the dam, others have taken up residence alongside the water lilies growing with gay abandon within my dam.

Reflection 9 | Nilofaur Lovegrove 2020

Multiplate linocut on Mulberry Paper, $325
Sometimes looking at the reflection in the water helps us notice the original object itself. Thin Mulberry paper is used for this print by pressing lino block with small hand pressures to create a soft pastel like effect.

The Colour of Water Unique Diptych | Sally North 2020

Bichromate Print, water colour pigment, wood, $280.00
WATER | Lifeblood -- The indispensable factor or influence that gives something its strength and vitality -- life giving force.

My response comes from the undisputable fact that the planet cannot live without water, water is the lifeblood of the world.

To our own lives, it brings colour and vitality, it grows and sustains, it cleans and refreshes, it floats and reflects, it's clear and transparent, it freezes and boils and it weathers and wears down.

Water Sigils Unique | Sambuddhananda Saraswati 2020

Monoprint and Serigraph, $235.00
Where are we without water?
Symbols of the elements have always been important to humans: from ancient cultures, to the alchemist and scientist, from the mystic to the magician. Wayfarers search for sigils or signs of a spring or well, others for a place fo safe swimmming and boating.

River City Ramble 4 | Phillipa Sturgess 2020

Linoprint on hand-marbled paper, $150 for 4 / $40 each
Rivers are at the heart of many cities, both historically and as part of modern urban life. These works are inspired by walks along the rivers of both Rockhampton and Brisbane. The technique of paper marbling has been chosen to give a taste of the continually changing nature of the river waters.
