James Whitington


intelligent animal and the Darlington Installation Project (DIP) present Monoprint Portraits: Abstract and Figurative by James Whitington.

A R T I S T   S T A T E M E N T:

These works are different examples of Monoprint. The dark works are made by wiping a line from dark ink rolled onto an even surface. They are abstract portraits, initially inspired by the shapes and character of chairs and created by using an etching press at low pressure.

The other figurate portraits use the monoprint technique of verso printing. Once again, a surface of ink is established with a roller, but the image is created by drawing onto the back of a sheet of absorbent paper, after being dropped onto the ink surface. These works were created at a residency in Cairns where I taught students to print without a printing press.

The campaign to move Australia beyond coal and #StopAdani is critical.  Community members from around the country are undertaking frontline action to stop the construction of the Adani Carmichael mine at Moray Downs, Queensland.  These dedicated people are engaging in peaceful civil disobedience to show Adani and their supporters that the community will not let them build their mine.  Intelligent Animal support Frontline Action on Coal (FLAC) in their nonviolent campaign to Stop Adani.


Intelligent Animal acknowledge elders, past present and future - and that they are of continuing importance in relationship and responsibility to traditional land.  ia respect the communication protocols and the role of Elders in culture and heritage protection advice. 


Intelligent Animal contributes to the growing awareness of the critical action required to ensure the future of our bio-diversity and to ensure there is ongoing protection.
